This evening I decided that I had the urge, after months and months, to sew.  So, I set out to my room and created this...  thing.  Blazer?  Jacket?
Anywho, the material is black brocade with turquoise and brown embroideries.  I also used a pattern, though the make and number escape me at the moment.  Though, if anyone wants to know, I'll run and find out.

On to the pictures!







Sorry for the lousy webcam shots, I was too lazy to take out my real camera.

So, I was thinking of wearing this blazer to a work holiday party, with something underneath.  Thoughts?

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Very beautiful! Definitely wear it! It looks very sexy but not too sexy to wear to an office party =)

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments!   Grin

This is beautiful!!! I would love to know what pattern you used.

It is McCall's 5278.  The directions are great, even though it's sorta confusing about the lining.  Quite simple...  This was my first time with this pattern and it took maybe two hours.
