Orange Peplum Jacket

I really wanted an orange jacket.

Before I get into the details of my new orange jacket, because this is my first sewing post, let me tell you about my sewing background.

I am a 3rd generation seamstress. My maternal grandmother and my mother both sew. My grandmother took up sewing because she had 12 kids and wanted them to look nice and it was more economical. My mother took up sewing because she didn’t like the clothes her mom made. I sew because I like to work with my hands and I like to create interesting pieces. I loved the clothes my mom made for me. If I ask her nicely, she will sew for me right now.

So, I took one semester of Home Economics Sewing and continued to work with my mom to become a better seamstress. I stopped and started on and off, picking up other hobbies but I would always return to sewing.Β 

After the birth of my daughter, I started sewing again and here I am.Β 

Now, here are the details on my jacket.

McCall’sΒ M7513Β is described as a fitted, lined jacket with back princess seams, with length and peplum options.

Welcome to my Blog!

Hi! I am Kaye, of Kaye Does the Most. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Do you know someone that always says “Oh that’s easy, all you have to do is…,”then they proceed to talk for 10 minutes and you are thinking, “That is not easy!” Well, I am that friend. “Hi!”

I decided to start this blog because I love DIY, whether it is cooking, baking, sewing or upcycling. I want to be able to share my projects with other like minded people. So, if you like to craft, cook, bake, sew this is the place for you. If you are not sure what you like, this is also the place for you.

I can’t promise that every project will be easy, but you will learn something new with every project.

Here is an idea of what future post will consist of.

Enjoy!

This is the cake I did for my daughter’s 5th birthday. Its time to start planning for my son’s 2nd birthday in 7 months, so expect to see some practice cake decorating projects in the future.

My daughter and I do weekly baking together at home. When kids have a choice to choose what is for dinner, they are more likely to help out and eat without complaining.
