A Chico's Knockoff

Every wardrobe has to have a bit of leopard in it,
 Don't cha Think?

Last Winter I tore this page out of a magazine.
I went to the Chico's web site and HERE it was.

I loved the jacket, not the price tag of $139.00.

By the condition of the picture,
can't you tell I had thrown it in a file?



It got me thinking...
How about if I sewed a cute leopard jacket
just like the one at Chico's????

I found some Leopard Faux fur fabric at Joann's for 40% off.
Buttons were Half off and I had a coupon for the black satin lining.
Final Price  $22.00!

I paired the jacket up with a black turtleneck and black pants,
just like the stylish photo in the magazine!


Have you ever tried to hold on to a camera,
while smiling and  trying to look stylish
 as you take a photo of yourself?

Boy. it's difficult!




It's been awhile since I sewed something for myself.
It was a fun project and I am happy with how it came out.

If you like the look and can't sew a stitch don't worry.
Take a look HERE, there are lots of styles of Leopard jackets.

This week I'll be linking up to the following sites....
