Then & Now w/ Butterick 5958 & Mccalls 6654

Hello Everyone and hoping all are enjoying the holiday season and rocking & rolling with holiday activities.

Surprisingly, I was able to get my xmas tree up a week early.  I normally put my tree up the 1st or second weekend of December... but I am happy to say its up and loving it.   With that taken care and being inspired by others, I went on a xmas tree palooza and put up small trees in various areas of the house, kitchen, dining-room and even the bathroom... sooo cute.

Now that I have taken care of the holiday decorating I am here with a Then & Now Post...

I made this duo a lil over a year & half ago after being inspired by a sewing diva's fabulous vest suit.  It was just the inspiration I needed to add some mix to my workwear.

Then 2015
 I wore the duo with modfied Mccalls 6796

Now 2016



A great ensemble to add to any wardrobe.  If anyone has been looking for something new to spruce up their wardrobe... add a vest to the mix.  Especially with the cooler temps. vests are perfect for layering.

Until then,
Have a Great Week !!

Great outfit. Love the color and the top you have with it. Thanks for the peek into your sewing room. Personalized your space with the "S" on the cabinet door, didn't you?

Thank you Aisha! My facebook friend's son Phillip created the caricature for me and love it and was able to add to it.
