The Houndstooth Jacket

For the first time in over a month, I managed to finish a project today.  Introducing my new houndstooth jacket made from Simplicity’s 4412 (View C without the cuffs).  Another reason why this project is so special is because it is the first item I’ve made on my new sewing machine (see more about that in an upcoming post).  I’m pleased with the way the jacket turned out; it’s princess seamed, so it is very fitted.  I plan on wearing it with a pair of jeans and black boots.  The fabric has just a touch of silver thread in the fabric which makes it look really nice with a pair of silver hoop earrings.

Behind the jacket, you can see the color that I just painted my dining room and kitchen.  And that should give you an idea of why it’s taken me a month to finish the jacket.
