It's been a long, long time...A WHOLE YEAR!
Thank God I haven't been sick. When COVID showed its ugly head in our home, it was only mild.
COVID 19 caused me to slow rtr down. I began to focus on what's important...my health and my family. I learned to cook a little. I've spent lots of quality time with 6my folks. I've lost almost 40 lbs! Yes, despite missing out on a few traditional activities, 2020 was good to me.
What I didn't do much of was sew! Well, I didn't sew much for myself. I sewed lots of masks in the early months.
- The construction is simple but not too simple. It's not a lined jacket but it has a facing. It's mostly straight lines. However, I needed to follow the directions to complete it. The directions were so well-written that they made it extremely easy. It was so easy I doubted that I was doing some things correctly.
- The shape of the jacket is so flattering. It accents all my curves really well. The back curve is perfect for running and cycling. It also adds a bit of femininity to the design. The sizing was spot on for me.
- The details were so cute. I loved the overlap at the top back. It was really cute and can be customized in so many ways to make different effects. I didn't add the ruffle. However, I did add trim to the bottom hem and the sleeves. It added a beautiful feature.
