Winter Grey

Now that I have my Summer sewing frenzy out of my system I am back to the reality of Winter Grey. Not in a negative way as I have finished a couple of projects that were cluttering up my sewing space. The jacket is a Vogue pattern (2211) I have had for years. It is double wool cashmere - so deliciously warm! I decided against the welt pockets with such thick fabric and created my own gathered pouch pockets which really set it off.
My second finished project is a striped denim grey skirt. I have created a "prize winning" ruffle in red and white stripe as well as bias binding the hem. A collection of red buttons finish it off. It looks great with my new jacket and black boots. Not so Winter Grey after all!
