Things have been a bit quiet here on the ol' blog. I apologise! Work and husband stuff has been taking up my life. Husband stuff is not what you'd think, it's actually us doing a whole lot of performances and work for his studies. It's fun and I'd never say no, but it takes time.
So! Here's the jacket I made last term (!) for my course at CIT. I am really happy with it, and wow I even passed the course!
I'm afraid that's the best photo there is.
The pattern is Vogue 8701, which also has a really nice dress pattern. Might get onto that soon too!
No buttons, just pinned at CIT.
The fabric is a wool tweed I found at a St Vinnie's in Braidwood. The places you find things!
The lining is a silk/cotton from Spoonflower, which has small screw heads as the print!
Cute back pleat detail.
So yes! I'm loving this new jacket. It's wonderfully warm and structured. It took me a loooong time to complete, as it's so detailed and difficult, but it was worth the effort. I have some lovely dark brown wool to make a second version now too!!
In one of my recent Craft Catchup videos I looked at this jacket in detail. Worth a look if you're interested in jackets!!
