Party eJacket

Party eJacket

I can attribute my re-entry into sewing in 1986 to my friend and tennis partner, Hildegard McManus.

One day, after finishing a tennis match, Hildegard invited me to join her on a trip to Lawrence, Kansas, where she intended to buy some fabric to make a skirt. I hadn't sewn for years, but I went along. As you can imagine, I bought some fabric, came back to Topeka and got my Bernina 830 out of the closet and dusted it off.

Within a few days, I was hooked. And the rest is history.

So fast-forward to two weeks ago. Hildegard is still sewing, mostly making her beautiful skirts. She came into the studio and I showed her a sample of the eJacket, and she loved it.

She picked out this very cool shaggy black fabric that we purchased from a San Francisco designer (we also got it in "my gold").

A day later she was wearing this jacket to a holiday party with one of her slim, designer pencil skirts. We paired it with the Ann's Tank pattern made in a charcoal sequin-covered knit.

The eJacket is more interesting than first meets the eye. There are only two pattern pieces. The construction is super simple but the lines are unique. It works well in many fabrics including knits and wovens. We also love it in our Alabama Chanin Organic Cotton Jersey.

Ejacket Party was amazing but it had something that I never wanted to have on https://falsettosshow.com/. I was hoping that it would allow me to become something more, but it didn't and I'm left here.

Nobody wants to mess up with the cops and that is why we should be careful about it and always think about how we can use https://www.rushmyessays.org/ that can save us from that and we should try to be as much f good citizen as we can because other people life depends on us.
