although I didn't see it at first, you and I were wrong for each other. Maybe I did see it, but didn't want to admit it to myself. You were so handsome. That's all I saw. But once I got to know you better, I realized you were thin and transparent. Really thin and transparent. You just did not have the substance I was looking for. Sensing my nascent misgivings, I should have sent you back where you came from, but I did not. I foolishly keep up the charade. I thought I could change you. Make you into something you were not. I lashed out at you. With my scissors. Please forgive me. I'm sorry I hurt you.

This is the first jacket I made with this pattern:

I watch a lot of old movies on TCM. Of course the ladies really knew how to dress, but lately "Somebody" and I have taken an interest in men's smoking jackets. So I promised him one for his birthday. Last month. I did have the pattern by then, but it took a bit of looking to find the right fabric at the right price. I found this at http://www.fabric.com/. Its a little lighter than I anticipated so I think I'll have to line it.
Three pieces of crepe in three colorways, a bizarre linen print and some black stretch denim.
Too bad I have other things I've got to finish before I can indulge in these.
