Durban, South Af...
I’ve been working on this jacket for the past few weeks and finally finished it last night and wore it to work today, I always get lazy towards the end with garments like this – the pockets, buttons holes, buttons, hand sewing the lining to the hem of the jacket etc etc!! all the small very necessary finishes that need to be done so that it can be worn! I do think I’m getting over my button hole phobia though, I felt quite triumphant (and very relieved) after finishing these 5!!
