The "Scandal" Inspired Coat......

I have no shame in admitting that I'm Scandal fan. Every Thursday my daughter (who's a college student at FAMU) calls me and we watch and chat about the episode. It's one of our favorite things to do together. Well this season Olivia has been wearing some really nice coats and you know my daughter's putting in her requests with me. Well as you know I made her a Cashmere coat (see the last post) but I'm also thinking about making her another one. When I saw this pattern I immediately liked it.

   

 It has that Olivia Pope feel to it and even more importantly it's my daughter's style. What do you think? If I make it I will probably use a similar fabric to the one on the envelope. I'll keep you posted.......

Also, the 50% off Alteration DVD Sale ends in one week (Oct 31st)!!! If you act now you can get an added BONUS---25% off the upcoming Pants DVD (November release).  Trust me you don't want to miss this sale. So many people have bought and are enjoying the new found knowledge of being able to do their own alterations!!!!

Take Care, ~Gentleman Jim

  2. I was thinking of making the same jacket! Just in ultrex or something to make it into a winter outer shell jacket. I'm looking forward to see how yours turns out.

  3. Hello Jim, I am wondering if you keep a list(from paypal) of buyers of previous orders for the alteration dvd. My child (who shall remain nameless for now) accidently threw my coupon away! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SAY YES. I really want the pant dvd.
