It’s time to go back to work on my jacket – until it’s finished! I spent a little bit of time on it over the weekend and this is what I’ve got so far:
The back of the jacket needs to have the hem put in. The last time I made this jacket, I cut the hem off and applied binding, so I didn’t notice how much fabric there was in this area. It doesn’t say to do it, but I’m going to have to ease in the hem a bit – and sew it down by hand or figure out how to make a blind hem again on my machine. I’m probably better off doing the latter, since I already know that I’m going to have to take up the hem of my bridesmaid’s dress.
I’m going to also have to find a button to go with it. I’m leaning toward something black, but if I could find something crazy looking like the lining fabric, I’d pick that up in a heartbeat! After that, all I have left is the sleeves. I may get to wear this out this weekend when we go to the Plaza! Now, if I wear this, I’m going to have to have some suggestions as to what would go with it. Anyone?
