Forty ’til 40 // Simplicity 8845 Again…..

Hey Family….I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!  My family and I went to Atlanta this year and had a blast!!  The weather was beautiful.  I was expecting it to be in the 30’s and it wasn’t…I say Atlanta knew I was 

Here is look #26!  This denim jacket was perfect for that beautiful Atlanta weather….even though I didn’t get to wear it not once…lol


Now let’s talk about this denim jacket. I LOVE this pattern y’all!!!  I made it a few months ago for a feature in Sewn Magazine and hacked it. CLICK HERE to check it out.  As I was making the jacket for the feature I immediately knew I had to have another one.  As I’m in the process of making MY white denim jacket (emphasis on MY) my daughter says “Oh mommy…I REALLY like that white denim jacket”.  I looked at her and said “Thank you” and continue sewing.  It was at that moment I knew this jacket was no longer MINE…LOL


As you can see, she has fully claimed this jacket which means I will be making another one.  Now you know I must REALLY REALLY LOVE this pattern to make 3 of them.


The details in this denim jacket are amazing.  It allowed me to practice my top stitching and welt pocket skills. And YES, there is A LOT of top stitching. I would suggest taking your time if you decide to make it.  Norris Danta Ford gives EXCELLENT step by step instructions on You Tube to follow.


I washed and dried the jacket twice after I made it to soften it up and give it that wrinkle look.



Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did.  I can’t wait to see you again.


Much love and many blessings!
