Description

(Pictures taken by my sister – Thanks, Suzie)
I made the jacket in my pattern-making course : perfect proof that hard work is always worth it! I am so happy with it, and although I am thinking of making the sleeves a bit shorter, I am perfectly proud of what I have so far. I ended up with enough leftover fabric to make a matching skirt. Yay!

    Well done. The making of a jacket intimidates me. I think I’m scared of the of structured nature of the piece and need for symmetry.

    Wow, that’s amazing and it fits you so well! I’m definitely not ready to try my hand at a jacket yet, but when I do, I hope it turns out at least a little as well as yours.

      That was such a sweet note, thanks! Drafting the pattern was definitely the hardest part. I had help from my instructor all the way, but it was still tough. Rewarding, too. =)

      Oh, thank you! I learned a lot by making the jacket and it’s hard not to come up with hundreds of different versions of it in my mind… Maybe some day…
