Do you like it?

Here's me wearing the new jacket over my ten year old knit boucle dress from the Textile Studio Basic Dress pattern.  I designed the cross-over petal collar on this dress that is still stylish after a decade!   I got my hair done yesterday for first time since getting sick.   It looks so much better,  but what you can't see is that I am leaning against that post behind me because my knees and ankles don't function correctly and my leg muscles are so weak from not being able to use them properly over these past months.  That combined with the numbness in my legs and feet seriously affects my balance.

The blog count says lots of people are looking at my blog.   I got an e-mail from Linda Lee, the owner of the Sewing Workshop who said she loved this Ikina and that she can't wait to see the Tosca Dress.   I highly recommend their auto-ship program for new patterns at a great discount and free shipping.   If one of the styles doesn't suit you, you can opt out of that one.   I've known Linda for several years, and she is a very busy lady,  so it was so nice of her to take the time to e-mail me about this special project.   


  1. I love it--the colors are beautiful on you and it's quite luxe. I'm glad you're starting to feel a little better!

  2. YES! I love it, you did a great job! It looks great on you.

  3. Love the jacket and the hair, Terri!

  4. Yes, I like it! I should find out where you live and just come and take it away. On the other hand, those are not my colors and they look very good on you, besides which I don't want to drive that far today (or any other day). What a nice coat!

  5. What a yummy jacket. Looks so good on you too.Yes.....I love it!
    I'm amazed at the Ikinas you have made. All different but perfect and sassy.
    Happy to see you sewing again.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  6. Yes I like it :)
    It looks great on you and nice hair too.

  7. Yes, I really like your jacket!

  8. Nice jacket Teri. The shoes are cute. I like them. Glad to see you are sewing again. You are the one that got me interested in the Cutting Line Design patterns. I am really happy with the ones I have made up so far. Relax A Little skirt (2) one in wool and one in linen and the blouse in rayon. One seam pants (2) and Shapes vest. Keep up the good work! Happy New Year!

  9. The jacket looks really lovely on you and I loved the combination of textures and colors.
