Since then, I have worn the jacket most of the times when the weather has allowed it. Now, with the autumn approaching I've been itching to make another jacket. And since my blog is receiving most of its traffic on the posts about the jacket, I decided to combine business with pleasure and launch a sew-along!

New. Obsession. - A Dress A Day Just so we're clear: I freaking love this dress.
