Utility Jackets for the Win

Utility Jackets for the Win

I found this material on what was supposed to be a strictly browsing trip to the fabric store; it was too cute to pass up, but it’s been so busy around here lately that it’s taken me a while to get around to sharing it on the blog.  While the weather is still far too cold for it, I decided to make a short, summer style dress and simply add layers.

With my sewing machine still not cooperating, I’ve had to suffer through my messy hand-stitching and hope for the best.  I think the dress turned out pretty nice all the same.

I like polished, practical pieces that work for day-to-day life; when I consider an item, I always ask myself whether or not it’s versatile enough to make the cut, and become part of my wardrobe.

I have had some epic failures in this department and, in all honesty, I wasn’t entirely sold on this utility jacket working out. I decided to give it a try even so, and it’s come in handy lately with the weather warming up ever so slightly; is that spring I detect?

Hope so!

Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you next time :)
