Two more clothing items finished

 I love this pattern it's vintage, long darts front and back and fits perfect too with my alterations to the shoulder width where my arms are. I add an inch there. Pattern is Butterick 8479 from the 50's I'd say.

This is a modern pattern. I kind of have the sleeves pushed up here, the cuff has a split and I think I have them about 1" too long, I can turn them up there perhaps. The lining is the black dots and I used a modern pattern using black wool gabardine. The pattern has princess seams front and back and there is a seam down the back as well. Nothing special or spectacular about a black blazer is there. 
* We had snow today while sitting in church, oh when will it all end?

you look great Nan! and you are such a great seamstress. I cant believe all the sewing you do. You must have a huge walk in closet.. or room to hang everything in!

I LOVE the plaid shirt, and love the way you did the darts..reminds me of when I wore plaid shirts. The colors look great with your skin and hair.
Have a great day.

Love them both! Especially the plaid shirt.

I finished the red and white dress and wore it to church yesterday! I also made 4 pair of shorts this weekend, just knock around the house shorts.

Still snowing?? UGH! We had 80 degrees last week in SW Virginia!
