Halfway there!

Ok, my camera batteries are dead, so no pictures yet. But, halfway there!



As you can tell, I clearly went for the easiest pieces first. (Actually, nothing in this wardrobe is particularly complicated, and I like it that way.)

I'm currently finishing up my jacket. Its looking great so far, but... its a bit transparent. Over a black shirt, the fabric is way darker. The right way to fix this? To line it. Only problem, I've never lined a jacket. I know the principle of how it works. Trying to decide if I want to do this. (Thoughts? I'll post a picture as soon as the batteries are charged.)

Also, I've started cutting my pants. I think I should do the pants next. Procrastination is not going to make this one go away, and I absolutely don't want to get to the last few days, and be struggling to sew pants.

Wow, you sew fast! Go! Go! Go! I can't wait to see your version of the Burda sleeveless top.

Wow I'm impressed, you can definitely do this, I think the bag looks like it will take the longest! I'm partway through the same jacket at the moment and I know what you mean about lining. You could do it, ending at the sleeve seam before the gathered bit, but I don't think it matters if it's a bit transparent.
