Finally! The warm spring weather is officially starting to hit Indiana. You might not recognize this church. I've taken lots of photo shoots here in the past, but the appearance has changed quite dramatically This past fall some vandals were playing around it and somehow the building caught on fire and burnt down. It's amazing how just one small accident can change a building into something completely unrecognizable. Even burnt down it's still a beautiful landmark to take pictures at. It reminds me of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, when Violet, Klaus, and Sunny revisit their burnt down home for the first time. It's melancholic and beautiful at the same time.

I made this jacket about a year and a half ago over Christmas break, but I just now finally got around to photographing it. It seems like I have far too many sewing projects that still need to be photographed. Some days it's hard trying to come up with new ideas when my environment is always the same. I've been looking for new locations to take photos lately and I found some places that I'm excited about. Now I just need to set time aside so I can focus on shooting my work more often.
I hand drafted this jacket pattern using my own measurements. The jacket is fully lined and was constructed using the same technique of drafting a princess style seam bodice. There are hidden pockets in the front alongside the zipper. The sleeves have ribbed knit, jersey strips as part of the underneath sleeve so there’s easement in the arms to make it more comfortable. I found all the fabric at Wal-Mart in their clearance section. This jacket has had lots of use, and I'm thinking about making another one in a camel color sometime soon. What do you think?
All photos taken myself
I hope you're all having a lovely Monday!
