I make lots of things. Sewn t-shirts, knitted sweaters, canoe gardens, canned veggies, crocheted pillows, refinished chairs, and so so much more. I'll share them all here.
And rocks, because rocks are cool.
This took FOREVER, but my Cascade Duffle jacket pattern is prepped and cut out! And my fingers are raw from doing it. :( I know I mentioned that I was making a winter coat in my last post, but I wanted to test out the pattern first and I've been needing a spring/fall jacket for longer than I've needed a winter coat.
Sorry for the crummy photo, but the khaki colour is the outer fabric, and the plaid flannel is the lining. I've only done some minor modifications, including narrowing the shoulders by 1/2 inch and cutting one size for the shoulders and another at and below the bust. Oh, plus adding some waist shaping and shortened the arms by 2 inches. I'll probably detail this out more later, but I needed to write this down somewhere so I don't forget.
I'll be using this reclaimed zipper I stole got from my Grandma, and possibly this trim material. I'm not sure how yet, maybe around the hem and across the yoke seam? Not sure yet. I'll also be trying to track down some leather the same shade as the zipper for the toggles. I'm also going to see if I can find some caribou antler for the toggles, but we'll see how successful I am at that.
Oh, and I'm putting a ridiculous deadline of Friday on myself, because we're going to Haines this weekend and I'd love to have a new jacket for it!
