A Tremont for the Stars and Stripes

Enjoy celebrating the 4th of July this weekend! 

‚ÄčThis starry Tremont Jacket was an easy make. The fabric is stable but has enough drape for the pattern. I used a vintage button from my collection for the closure. I can wear this look to the office, out to dinner, and I'm kind of wishing I would have worn it to film my last Craftsy class! (Click here for a discount on all my classes and for the latest class on Taming Tricky Fabrics.)

I'm wearing a MixIt Tank under the jacket and the cropped version of the Valencia Pants

‚ÄčI tested the fabric by pre-washing a swatch. The good news was that the metallic paint stayed intact. However, I felt the washed swatch was too limp for the look I wanted so I used fabric straight from the bolt and I will dry clean as needed.

For the pants, here is a similar linen that looks great with the Star Canvas:
