Readers, not even last Saturday night's bomb explosion (which took place just three blocks from my apartment) could keep me from sharing my new red cotton work jacket with you today.
Please check out the entire photo shoot here.
I am so glad I made my jacket in this color. Michael has already requested one in gray, and I'll probably make myself another in a black and white Marimmeko panel print I'm eager to use. I can't wait to start my next garment from my Japanese pattern book "Men's Clothes For All Seasons." I've already traced the cropped pant, so that's probably the one I'll choose.
I hope you like my versatile little jacket. I still think this color is more cranberry (blue undertones) than tomato (orange undertones) but Michael thinks it has both orange and blue undertones if such a thing is possible -- and why wouldn't it be?
Have a great day, everybody. Stay safe!
