So, my tuxedo was *not* finished by Saturday night’s fundraiser. I wore a RTW dress that’s been hiding in my closet for the last two years. I spent 30 mins working on my tux last night. The pattern is from the February 2011 Burda, #126.

I really love the jacket so far. Can’t wait to see it finished. You do an amazing job!
[…] worn the business out of these pants I love them so! But, the jacket? Meh. The pocket placement got jacked (my fault). It took me months to buy lining. And now, I can’t find one of the already completed (but not […]
