      Thanks! The fabric was a lucky find on Mood’s website because I’m not a fan of the traditional plaid boucle ;)

    Just perfect. I adore the use of the chain on the outside as trim and the fabric is just stunning. And the addition of shorts – fabulous! :)

    Wow. What a fabulous jacket. 100 hours is almost 3 weeks work. Well done for patience, skill and endeavour. Not to mention the great result, and the shorts!

      Precision and persistence are key. Make sure you cut enough of a “halo” around your jacket and lining pieces before quilting them together. Good luck!

      No, the others were made by my very talented classmates. We lined up the mannequins and had a little photo shoot on the last day of class!
