Added Jan 28, 2011
This is my first time working with tweed. I used Simplicity Pattern #2927. The dark trim is the underside of the fabric and I frayed the seams along the front, at the shoulders, and at the bottom (I added two more rows above the hem that I frayed as well). It has sort of a vintage feel to me-maybe it’s because of the tweed.
