After much ado I was able to get all of my old posts from the blog on Tumblr – Sip the Diva to here! This was not an easy process and a lot of research was done.  I wish more support was provided for these actions. I digress.. “We started from the bottom and now we are here!” Thanks for listening and don’t forget to follow 🙂

Projects on deck:

Purple crepe pants with a curved hem
Teal elastic bottom pants
Yellow skirt with ruffle

and A black and leather knock-off Olivia Pope dress —————>>>

Umm Yeah — “She did that!”

At 8:00 am yesterday morning the jacket looked like this ..

By 9:30 PM the jacket was completed to this below!

This is a leather and wool tweed jacket made with lambskin leathers from Michael Levine Fabrics.  The wool and tweed was purchased from A Fabric Place in Baltimore, zipper from GStreet Fabrics. I have to say the pattern was fairly easy, the only difficulty came when attaching the collar.
The leather sleeve was attached to the bodice then the lining inserted versus the instructions who have you inserting the lining into the sleeve then attaching the sleeve and over-locking.
