A Nice Anise

My Anise jacket is finished! And I've been wearing it loads!

Fabric: burgundy wool ($5/yd), black fleece backed satin for lining ($5/yd)Pattern: Colette Pattern's AniseYear: contemporaryNotions: buttons ($12)First worn: October 2012Wear again? Yes, yes yes and yes! I've worn this jacket loads since I made it. I'm so happy with how this came out. It's warmer than I expected and so cute! It fits really well and the only thing I'd change about it would be to lengthen the sleeves about 1/2". 

I put in a lot of work on this project and just relaxed and had fun with it rather than being stressed about meeting the sew along dead line. I finished less than a week behind the last sew along post so I count myself on time!

I paired it with a grey me made dress (to be blogged soon!) and my black Mary Janes.

I was able to get a few quick snapshots at church. The weather has been gray and damp lately so I didn't have a chance to get super nice pictures.

But this cute kitty posed with me so I know you'll forgive the less than stellar quality of the photos.


  1. I like how the jacket came out. It looks warm, comfy, and cute - perfect! Your co-star is also very dashing. ;)

  2. LOVE it! Wow. And a versatile color too, I think. Not a neutral but should go with loads. Congrats on finishing, it looks wonderful on you!

  3. Marvelous job! Love the colour, anything in the plum/burgundy family is always a hit with me, too.

  4. It's so cute! you did a beautiful job. The collar is darling! I really need to take the time and make my own coat. I've been wanting a full skirt princess seam coat for so long but with a 44 bust it's not easy to find one. I love that grey dress and red belt outfit!

  5. Beautiful!! It looks fabulous with that dress too, which I'm in LOVE with!

  6. Love the jacket and the dress, great work!

  7. It is so beautiful!! You must feel so proud! This is motivating me to get back to my traced pattern.
