Love the colors! I can see why you fell in love with it. Great job on the pockets.
A beautiful coat Sue and enjoy wearing it
Love the color of the fabric, and the outcome of the jacket is really good. Wish I can sew something for me as well. Merry Christmas!
Lovely Jacket. Maybe a thin woven iron on interfacing ,ironed on to the back of the fabric would of helped to keep the shape of the pieces while you stitched the jacket together,making it a more enjoyable project.
It has iron on interlining already! Actually I think the one I used is rather too heavy.
What different fabric, looks great as a jacket and comfortable, pretty Sue.
That's really pretty. I like it too.
Looks good, what kind of material is it?
It is a wool and poly mix. The base fabric is quite loosely woven and the yarn stripes almost couched onto the surface,
Sue, you will look fabulous and feel good in this coat knowing how hard you worked......it looks terrific!
Can understand why you fell in love with the fabric. Good job, wear it with pride.
A great custom look for you. I love the fabric, too.
Very clever Sue, I love what you come up with when you are making something different. Love Chris
It looks lovely and digitising shapes like that is splendid. I remember making 4 } shaped flaps in two sizes for a jacket some 30 odd years ago, two breast pockets and two hip ones. I'd never do that again the old way! Sooo much easier to digitise them and let the machine do the work for you.
I am 85! If I were 75 perhaps I would tackle something like this. It 's a beauty. Enjoy!
