How are you all doing? I hope you had a restful weekend. It's officially summer and I couldn't be more excited for what this new season will bring in terms of fashion and sewing. I am just dropping by to share this DIY spring/summer jacket I made a while ago. I wore it to church for Thanksgiving Sunday services. I wanted the jacket to the focus and statement piece therefore I paired it with all black. For those that sew, I have a sewing pattern review below...:)
