Melbourne cup fun

Hi ,

As I said last week I will show you the ensemble I created to wear last year to a Melbourne Cup luncheon. Also the top I blogged about last week .

Arrival time wearing my jacket Headpiece and the top .

I made a jacket in a pink tweed fabric it is unlined and I altered the pattern to accommodate wheelchair ease of use. Splits at the side , not restricting full sleeves for movement.

The jacket is unlined so good to wear in warmer weather. It is really comfortable . I bought a pink headband piece then using the fabrics of my makes and some ribbons, I altered it to work for me .

I had a lovely day

This look came together when a friend was visiting we got the offer to attend the lunch and then looked at my stash and I came up with a plan.

This is the pattern for the jacket and the fabric I used .

I changed the jacket sleeves added bows and added the belt. I shortened it and added patch pockets to the front .

This was a very satisfying make and two pieces I will enjoy wearing.

Happy Sewing ,

Sue 😊
