Description

I really fell for this McCall’s jacket with bias cut side panels. I “bagged” the lining instead of the directions in the pattern. I made the sleeves long instead of 3/4 length as the pattern said. The shell underneath is hand knit, my first garment made with knitting. Skirt can be seen under “Diverse skirts” posted earlier.

Material Notes

Old wooden buttons. Fall suiting. Polyester black lining.

      Hi NessyS, Thank you! The chicken is not mine, unfortunately, but belongs to some friends of ours in MN, USA. My parents used to have about 2000 laying hens but sold them before I was born. I have always wanted some, but haven’t gotten any yet.
