Wool as always been my favorite fabric to sew, it’s so forgiving. The darts on the Eva Jacket are the craziest I’ve ever seen. It took a few tries but the sides seem to match now. I put a rather heavy interfacing into the collar but used a lighter weight for the sleeve bands and facings. Since my Eva was not in an eye catching plaid I added a little top stitching to the color and pocket flaps.
Gray wool from my grandmother’s stash, blue polyester lining.
