Retro Coat

This is my version of the Retro Swing Jacket.  How about that lining!  Photo not doing it justice maybe in daylight you can see the sparkles.  I'll do it again in better light.

And then my OCD set in........

Somewhere in one of my posts last year I made a vow to find a dress pattern that fit this rather mature body.  You see friends, I've been wearing separates for years with very, very few dresses, mainly because I'm hard to fit.  I purchased this pattern when it first came out but didn't try it until now.  This is truly a good style for me.

I can wear it under many style jackets and sweaters.  It looks really nice with the jacket open and is an absolute snap to make in a very short time.  And then my OCD took over and I've made four so far.
