First up is this outfit from the Fit for Art Patterns Tabula Rasa Jacket. I made a lined tweed tone on tone version back in August Tabula Rasa Jacket #1 and this is my entirely different one suitable for FL evenings.

Thanks to my enormous collection of lightweight silks, stashed from numerous JoMar and Fabric Mart Pennsylvania trips over the last 10 or 12 years, I have plans for several more of these easy to sew jackets. This one was made to go with black pants and also this black twist top dress which is merely the Jalie twist top Jalie 2788 lengthened and sleeveless. The fabric is a corded slinky like fabric from Fabric Mart. Wonderful travel dress and I am sure I will wear it frequently.
This lightweight jacket is easy to wear although without shoulder pads my low right shoulder (which seems to be sinking lower ever year) does make the right side droop. I'm too lazy and not vain enough to make separate right and left pattern pieces for this jacket and I figure my vivacious personality and sparkling conversation will distract you, right? Or maybe the bold fabric combinations will blind you until I leave the scene.
