 I used Kathryn Brenne's Vogue 9217 pattern again. I really like this jacket. I used the pants as well in some raw silk that I dyed.

 Here is the back.
 The collar and front facing with buttons.

Paris T-Shirt

 This is the Mandy Boat Tee from Tessuti which is a free download. I bought this fabric from Marcy Tilton's Fabrics.
The pattern runs small. I had to add 2" on the sides.

 This is a purse that a friend made and I love it so much.

Diane Ericson's Raven Bag Pattern


 My version of Diane's bag. I used some of my dyed fabrics and my hand painting on silk.
This is the back and put a pocket inside. I think it will be fun to use.

New Tunic Top

 This is a Tessuti Pattern Olga Tunic Top that I downloaded from the internet and taped together. Viktorya Allen suggested it on Facebook in the wearable art group.
 This wasn't that bad to tape together as it is pretty basic. I would say that it runs small. I had to add a couple inches to the sleeves and inch and half on the sides. I shortened it a inch. It has two other views and I hope to try those as well.
 I didn't have enough material to make the sleeves as long as I wanted. So this is the add on.
 Adding a bias stripe around the neck really makes it pop.
I didn't have fabric to make a full pockets so had to piece that as well. Added a couple of buttons. I really like this pattern.

Another Dress

 I decided to try the same pattern in another fabric. I was disappointed because the fabric that I chose this time wrinkles easily, so I probably won't wear it much.
