Nice job. What fun with that lining. I feel the same about acrylic.

This outfit looks lovely on you! What a great idea to lengthen the top into a dress too.

What's a fun outfit, the dress, the jacket, and the shoes! You put things together so well! I've been looking for a pair of Mary Janes like that, but in black since December. I still don't have them because they're always sold out in my size! OH!

I love the combination of the plaid with that lining fabric. If one pattern is good, two is better. And I don't think we even need to talk about those shoes. Do they come in my size?

Looks good -- I really like the reversable shot......more options from one dress/jacket combination. Nice work.

Love, love, love it! and I love Down with Love. I have that movie and I agree it is hilarious. and the clothes in that movie are such fun. Well done on your "Down with Love" outfit. Oh and the pose is just perfect!

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Cindy Lou, I actually live about 7 blocks from St. Ex in the District. Small world. Zoe--don't worry, I'll keep sewing (Zoe is my mom's name!). Katharine--I am a total shoe lover. It's ridiculous. But I love these round toed wedgie leopard print mary janes!!!! I neeeeeed them! That's how you end up with more shoes than closet space. But you always have the perfect shoes for every outfit. What could be better for this than round toed wedgie leopard print mary janes?

I know that movie, and you look every bit as wonderful as Renee. Very inspiring!

love it, please keep sewing and writting reviews. I enjoy yours very much. I have the tunic pattern, this motivates me to sew it. Thank you...

Very funky, Very DC! My SIL and BIL have a hip pub called Cafe St. Ex up there... this outfit is perfect for a night at their place! Wish we had places to wear such cool stuff here in small-town NC...

The bias midriff is a very nice touch, especially in a plaid.

Very nice ensamble. I like the bias midrif and the addition of the belt to match the lining of the jacket. Creative design work!!
