It's so windy today, something that is pretty typical for a New Mexican Autumn. It's funny how the wind gusts through the trees really sound like crashing waves at a beach!

I've had scoop neck jackets on the brain since I saw this one on flickr and then saw this Anthropologie jacket and used the peter pan tutorial I posted about previously and got such a fun jacket! I did messs up when I made the pattern, making the neck too high. So when I made my collar pattern it was too small, but I didn't realize it until I had completely made the collar and had no more fabric left. After trimming down the neck on the bodice, I just attached the colar where it would fit and it ended up like this...which I think did end up looking mighty nifty!

I finished B's costume this week. She wanted to be a witch (obviously) and I wanted her to be something creative, so we met in the middle and she's got a cute Halloween outfit that she thinks is a witch costume ;)

I was inspired by a talented boutique style dress maker and a cute little skirt in a pic taken by a fellow photographer.

Are you working on your copy crafts?
