Sushi Jacket

Sometimes projects don't always come out as cute as I had hoped.  The last dress I had made Stella was one of those projects.  So I am extra thrilled that this came out like I had hoped it would.  It is the Make it Perfect Uptown jacket and I couldn't be happier.  The fabric is Timeless Treasures (sushi fabric) and Mini Mikes Michale Miller (orange gingham).   I was worried that the sushi print would be too big.  But it isn't.  It is just right.

 Here is the fabric close up.  I bought it at Alewives when I was doing the quilt hop.  And here is the back.  I love the hood with the contrasting fabric.

And the jacket is revisable.  The sushi fabric is kind of busy so if it is too much for what Stella is wearing I can just reverse the jacket to the orange gingham side.

Today we are going to the May Day festivities in our town.  It should be sunny but not too warm so I hope to get lots of pictures of Stella wearing it.  Hopefully I can keep her from spilling her lunch all over it.

* edited to add - I took some pictures today at May Day. Here is the girl wearing the jacket!

and here is one of all of us!

It is not the best picture but it is rare to have one of the four of us.

edited again - I just linked up to Sew Cute Tuesday on Better off Thread!

Oh my goodness, this has got to be the cutest jacket I've ever seen! I want to drop everything and make one just like it! I hope it's okay to pin it on Pinterest!

Pretty girl in a pretty jacket! I've never seen a jacket made out of sushi print before (and I'm even Japanese! lol) and you did such an awesome job here! Oh and you have a very nice family :D

I have always loved that pattern. And yours is super cute. I like the sushi, but I adore the orange gingham. I think everyone should wear more orange!
