Purple, My Favorite Color

All the projects seen in my last post have been completed.  I can't show the costume project yet, but eight wash cloths and four pillowcase liners were completed within a couple days:

I finished a garment for me!!!  yay!!

Simplicity 4552, which is a wardrobe pattern, includes a jacket shaped somewhat like a kimono.  I shortened the sleeves and made it up in a lightweight, burnout knit - in purple, of course!  Enjoy the pictures.

Wish me luck,  This thin, burnout fabric is a bee - itch to work with!
