Vogue 8146 (supposedly “Very Easy”, but I beg to differ!!!)
I love this jacket, I love this colour, I love everything except the fabric :(
I had read that wool felt when washed was like boiled wool (which I really like), but this is so stiff, that the back pleats stick out like two dorsal fins!! Any suggestions as to how I can soften the fabric will be much appreciated.
Shell- Italian wool felt (35% wool, 65% rayon)
Lining- Chinese pure silk chiffon
Frog closures (instead of buttons)
Behind the seams with Marina von Koenig Part 2

Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.

Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
