    This is beautiful Darl – love the blue wool and the lovely contrast of the black velvet. Just stunning attention to detail once again. You always leave me in awe of your creations. That piping on the lining would have been pretty fiddly. I like the fact you used modern fusible canvas! I am about to start a jacket and I have tried no end to find horse hair canvas or even shoulder roll tape – I just can’t seem to get those traditional haberdashery bits and bobs anywhere but fusible canvas I just might be able to do!

      Thank you. Su and I work hard to keep our fitting and finishing skills polished, and to expand our knowledge and skills base.

      In this one we used modern fusible canvas and a lot of hand finishing where it shows. Getting the constrast piping round the edge of the lining was the most pernickerty thing!
