My Very First Pattern

Up until now, I have actually never really attempted to make clothes using a pattern. For some reason, I never had the desire to make clothes. I just had the desire to learn to sew to make pillows, curtains, and other things for home decor. However, I decided I would do the elsie marley kid's clothes week challenge and I discovered that sewing clothes {for kids} is kind of awesome. Plus, the quality of hand-made items is often way better than what you would buy in the store. Now, I see things and my mind goes to "Oh, that is SO easy to make!" Who's with me? Since KCWC, I have wanted to make both Cai and Naomi jackets. I finally settled on a pattern for Naomi's jacket and without further avail... it is... an Oliver + S Sunday Brunch Jacket! I'm pretty flippin' excited about it!
And this is the only preview you get until after Christmas, because I don't want to completely give it away! My SIL reads this blog sometimes! So...Shhh!
