    Thank you for your kind words. This was one of the projects that is a sheer joy from beginning to end (for me anyway), There was a lot of hand stitching involved in shaping the wool with weft interfacing and inserting the lining. It went from being a scratchy piece of navy wool fabric to a soft beautiful perfect fitting jacket – I just love it, its a shame its coming into summer in Australia!
