My first jacket! It was a course in hand sewing techniques, patience and a few new skills for this seamstress. I used the Anise Companion to help me along. A few mistakes here and there but I’m glad I made it. This was my first experience with sewing wool.
I used a wool flannel, a fun polyester lining (I think it’s polyester, I got it as a freebie from someone), cotton muslin underlining and natural wood buttons.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
