Vogue 8259

I want to thank you all for the very nice comments on my jacket.
Faye I'm honestly not sure how long it actually took me to make this jacket. I know I really should keep track but I never think of it. If I were to roughly add up the time I'd say it would have taken me no more than a week. (We are selling our house and buying another house and unfortunately that has taken priority over my sewing time. I'm not too upset over all this though because it will all be worth it when we are settled again in our new location.)
I know when I read other people's blogs, I like to see them wearing their finished garment, so I wanted to post a picture today of me wearing my jacket.. I didn't have a photographer handy though and had to do this task myself! Not very professional ....and approx 100 pictures later....this is actually kind of funny......I think I need to get a tripod :)

The style and the color are truly lovely. It looks great on you! I love the tapered sides,it looks boxy on the pattern but on you it looks great. I am really considering this pattern as a contender for when I have the courage to start my first C ! Well done.

Oh Ann, your jacket and you look wonderful! So nice to see you wearing it. That photography thing is hard, I definitely agree, but so worth it. I use it for fitting help, too. Thanks for making the effort

Ann, it's just beautiful on you. I got a tripod and although it isn't as easy as having a photographer, it does help a lot. I got a travel one that opens to about three feet high ,but you can also just place it on a table. I got it at Black's at Regent Mall and it cost $29.99. Well worth it I think.Happy Mother's Day. I felt like an orphan. No kids at home but a phone cll from all three.

Would anyone be willing to permit me to borrow Vogue Pattern 8259 is size 12-14? I would pay a fee and return your pattern in its original condition within a few days. I cannot find it anywhere. Thanks. Ember, Dallas
