Coral and White!

Pattern: Simplicity 3845, 2007 Threads Magazine Collection Sewing Pattern. Misses' Pants Or City Shorts, Skirt And Lined Jacket: The collarless jacket has round neckline, concealed front button closing, three quarter sleeves and pocket and trim options; The belt with bow closes with snaps; The pants, shorts have waistband, front and back darts and side zipper closing; the skirt has side hemline vent.
 Sizes: 8-24
Fabric: Polyester crepe and polyester lining
The coral plant was a smaller version as a gift from a friend. She calls it Angel Wings. Although I took pictures, the lower right seam needed a little more pressing. I actually love the feel and drape of the fabric.
 
 Adjustments: Added 4" to the jacket and 5" to the skirt.


 Embellishment: Polyester roses by the yard from JoAnn Fabrics. Roses were stitched horizontally between each rose so as not to distort the roses. The facing was added, then the roses and the buttonholes before completing the lining.

I considered stitching a vertical line on the right side of the buttonholes, but did not want the line on the right side of the fabric.

    1. Thanks Annie! I was traveling today and went into JoAnn's and they have several colors in the roses. It was hard not to get another color.
