Ponte Trench in Action

As most of you know I made McCall's 5525 from ponte, details found here

Friday night, big class reunion time (numbers won't be mentioned) and I was debating on the trench or motorcycle jacket with my white blouse and trouser jeans.  I asked a good friend which jacket and she said motorcycle, a bit more casual.   This was a good choice for the night, the dress was more casual.  I did grab the camera and set the timer for several consecutive shots.  Here is the ponte trench in action:


The white blouse is Butterick 5526, blogpost here.

Off to work on a Vogue blouse, not much time to sew this week.  I have managed about 20 minutes each morning, so the blouse is down to cuffs and buttonholes.

  9. Great outfit. Hope your reunion was fun. It's always interesting to see people who have aged and changed, and yet our own selves don't!
