An oldie but a goodie at the Potato Festival!

This was one of the first jackets that I made. I can now see all of the faults and flaws in it…. but it makes me realise how much I have learnt. e.g. The pieces of fabric added at the front (which I actually now like) are cover ups. I applied too much heat to the interfacing and it warped a little. Aside from that I like the colour and cut of the jacket. We took these photos at the POTATO festival!….. only in germany!

    Your photographer is really good with saturated colours, anyway enough about him, it’s about YOU! Great jacket for a first take on the subject matter. It already looks vintage although brand new!

    This is a lovely jacket. The colour is really sweet and unusual. It is so rewarding to see how our sewing skills grow and improve over time.

    I wish I had gotten to the potato festival when I was in Germany. I love potatoes!

      thanks for the comment. Yes I used a pattern for this one. I think it is a McCalls pattern. It is a few years old though. But it is a bit of a classic one, so it probably is still in print. Thanks again!
