Fort Mc Murray, ...
This jacket was a present for my mother in-law who had asked a year ago if I could make her something! When I picked up this fabric, I didn’t like it all that much, but the more I looked at it the more I fell in love with it. The fuchsia purple would never be a usual color choice for me but it was such a steal ($2.50 per meter) and now I really wish I got what was left on the bolt! Inside the herringbone detail are little flecks of every color (from lite blue to black, from red to yellow), the jacket really goes with everything – which is a bonus since it was a present.
I wanted something that was fun to wear, not just a jacket when you are going on the town, so I lined the jacket with lime green cotton, and added only two buttons on the front (instead of the recommended 8), there is also a third button on the very top to hold the right rounded collar under the left side.
