Move over Scarlett

I made a jacket yesterday.  Jacket sounds to complicated , I made a thing to wear over tee shirts.  I used a table cloth.  I purchased this tablecloth at a local goodwill, It was brand new and in the package, I loved the fabric. it was $2.00. When  I saw it and thought Jacket over a tee shirt with jean skirt.


I got the pattern out



Looked at the directions -need I say I got that same slightly sick  feeling I used to get in 8th grade homec class



Cleared off the table

Put the cutting board down that I just bought at an estate sale last week ($2.00)


Cut the pattern apart and looked at the directions



Started laying it out and realized according to the pattern I don't have enough fabric.

Huh?  I'm sorry I may look like a barrel but I am not that big!!



So I decided to do this Ginny Style

Got out a plate



Ruler and Chalk


Measured and Cut



Took it to my surger;


and I will Show you the finished jacket next post!!


Have a great Weekend and Happy of July USA!!
