I've been enjoying some slow sewing this past week. I'm sure you've noticed that fast sewing is my normal order of business and I do like fast, but this has been a pleasant change.
Assisted by an extra day off school last week due to a sick kid (Adele and her crappy tonsils!), I managed to get a cracking start to what is looking like its going to be my first successful winter jacket.
Even though my first jacket isn't quite finished, I can't help but plan my next. I still have my Tessuti jacquard waiting for a good pattern. I quite like the look of Burda Raglan Jacket 06/2013 #123. What do you think?
Burda A Line 60s Jacket 02/2014 #132. I think it will look cute with skinnies. Any thoughts or alternative suggestions?
And because three jackets clearly isn't enough when you live in Australia, I also have plans to make a French jacket with this lovely wool silk boucle from Emma One Sock. I think I may also purchase The Couture Cardigan Jacket to help me with this make or ask for it for my birthday. Can anyone tell me if it's a helpful resource?
