I have totally lost my sewing mojo after this project; so much unpicking and handsewing, it took me 4 weeks fitting sessions in around work and family committments; still, his Nibs (my son) loves it and that is the main thing. It is not perfect by any stretch, there is some the rucking on the right side of the collar and the sleeves were a tad nightmarish, but it’s done and I am pleased :)
No, it’s not wool! Viscose, polyester, elastane mix from Fabulous Fabrics in Perth. It is very heavy! The lining is bemsilk from Spotlight and the buttons come from Homecraft Textiles in Victoria Park (I am in Western Australia)
