Sewing a jacket a month is ... well, it might be ... hard. I wonder if it will get easier? oops, am I complaining?
I do love my new jacket. If you ever find wool denim, grab it! It is just an unlined jacket, but between the tight weave and the wool, it is warm. The pleat in the back makes it very comfortable to wear, too.
There are shoulder pads inside- covered in a rayon lining. I serged the seams with gray thread I had on hand. It crossed my mind that others would have finished the edges with snazzy Hong-Kong seams, but I have not yet mastered that technique. I was mighty happy that the gray thread blended so nicely. Perhaps there will be a Hong-Kong seam before the year is out.
Now see that? Within the space of a paragraph, I went from a little weary to a little curious about what's next. I wonder what I will sew in March?
updated to add: there is more of this wool denim in stock at Gorgeous Fabrics.
