Hard to see the Glitter in this sweater knit but I loved it -Silver Metallic thread throughout.
Paired with a Jacket-Cardigan made out of Red and another glitter scarf from the 'Treasure Hunt' Room at G Street fabrics.
I felt Really Holiday Atmosphere!
Quick Sweater Dress...
Favorite body pattern... raised neck a little... and added long sleeves- Put both front and back pieces on fold cut and sew dress part done..
Sleeves from this pattern have already been adjusted to the length I like... cut and sew sleeves... quick and then inset into dress....
The separate cowell neck scarf is fast and easy and usable by itself but with the dress I felt flashy...
1. Did Earrings out of glitter sweater knit
2. Did Cowell Neck scarf
3. Inspired to do the quick Dress....
4. Put in the earrings... put on the dress.... put on the scarf..|add a flashy already used Bright Red Cardigan with another glitter material straight scarf... and go to work.
With my new fur trimmed raincoat on over it....THE BOMB... LOL

I have to seriously think about my future-or finish...
This is where I want to get..I still want to sew everyday...It is supposed to snow today, and I have to finish my coat so I can wear it. Other than that it is my day off. Sew Sew Sew
Oh and to Sew with a view!
This is my NEW YEARS RESOLUTION...

Adding Fauxfur trim to bottom and cuffs
Todays Tasks- Day Off
Cut Out the Coats.... Suede Sherpa and Raincoat
and sew one cardigan
Well, It Snowed after I had cut out the lining and the jacket. Planning on making the lining and the Raincoat and just sewing the two together... it was cold and my son said it was snowing and I had to go to work... I didn't want to get freezing wet cold... so I quickly put the lining pieces together and wore the lining... MY BAD..... LOL
Raincoat Material ... Cut out and ready...
The Lining all cut out and soooooo warm looking but light as a feather
Well, I put pockets in it like the raincoat will have... and made it with the hood..
The Lining was soooo light and fluffy... I couldn't resist with the idea of cold wet snow...
I used the faux Fur that was the trim for the suede sherpa coat and had a scarf --- so so soft and put that around my neck under the lining coat..
I will make the coat tomorrow and sew them together... BUT THIS WORKED... It was snowing Big Flakes...OKAY So sometimes I just have to wear things before they are totally finished.
Lining as it fits inside of the Raincoat
Raincoat before inserting insulated pockets and attaching belting and then the Insulated Lining itself...
Remember there is only a front ( two pieces that make the hood and front of coat) and back and sleeves.... QUICK PATTERN -adjustments were extending the bottom to a straight bottom a little longer than pattern, and making sleeves roomy and straight without the cuff as in pattern plus adding pockets to raincoat and lining so it could be reversible if wanted.
Insulated Pockets for raincoat
ALL SEWN Lining IN COAT and Pinned around edge....??? I want it reversible... Pockets on both sides, but I want a waist Band... Soooo, I have to sew both Waistbands on at the same time... This will Be TRICKY.. Because it is puffy with this insulation and I can't baste because it is rubberized and that pokes holes. Soo, Fur Trim Option.
This is Inside out... I kind of like the lining.. Like a ski coat
I pinned it together the way I have to sew it so there is just a top stitched edge, but it will make a trim if I make it reversible on the inside... But since I want to make it reversible... I am thinking maybe fur, especially around the hood
The decision now is Waistband with wide elastic in it in the back or just a belt where I can overlap the front and tie..
Waistband to have wide elastic in it and go from seam to seam in the back and then tie or overlap at front of Coat or hook or grommets with cord
Wide Non Roll elastic in Belting and then D Rings
Used D Rings on the end of the belting to just pull it through... and both sides have pockets so it is reversible....Silver or Dark Brown
Of COURSE, then I will need a Black Fur Scarf... Will have to buy some fur, with the coupon this weekend.... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME... I think I might need another half a Yard.... I only got 3/8 and I am thinking to trim the sleeves and the whole jacket with about 2 inches showing on inside and out.... DONE
