Oh my word! This is the make of which I am most proud, so far: stress free, straightforward and no sewing disasters.
Huge compliment… my husband likes it. Though he thinks it’s
like something “Mary Berry might wear”!!! Is that bit still
The fabric, as per usual, is leftover from my Nan’s stash. This started
life as rather faded curtains and I had to fiddle around with pattern
placement to make sure all the fabric was the same colour! I have more
of this fabric left that has been sun faded to a very light turquoise,
which I might use at a later date.
The pattern is from Stylish Dress Book (Clothing for Everyday Wear) by Yoshiko Tsukiori. The instructions are excellent, and provide an easy
to see tick list to check you’ve done
everything and in the right order.
Again, cute little pockets - I’m becoming a real pocket lover!
One make later, we have a great jacket and a happy stitcher… now, what next?
