The finished silk jacket... I must say I’m really happy with the result, not to mention being happy with finishing it more than 5 minutes before I walk out of the door! Here are some photos and I promise I will post a picture or two of me actually wearing the whole outfit. I will have had my hair and eyebrows attended to by then so I’ll be looking presentable – I hope.
On to my other project for the week – my new work wardrobe, lets just say FAILED! Well to be fair I have spent the time going through my existing wardrobe and seeing what I have that’s useable, altering some stuff that was almost okay, and finishing some projects that I cut out ages ago. I also bought a couple of basics to get me through in the short term. I realised I’d rather spend my time sewing more challenging and fashionable styles than rush things I ultimately won’t be happy with; and it’s actually cheaper for me to buy the basics. I have prepared a few patterns so I’ll post soon about my upcoming work.
