I think 2015 will be a good sewing year. Off to a flying start with an Islander Sewing System jacket in white denim.
This pattern is available through Janet Prey's Sew Better, Sew Faster course on the Craftsy.com platform. Even with all the tricky top stitching it is very fast to put together. I made it in about 3 hours over a few days. The instructions for this pattern are brilliant - especially the no fail explanation for the welt pocket.
Collette at Tessuti helped me choose these unusual Italian pewter buttons. They are fractionally larger than I'd like, but I really like the jean-like look without being too casual. Because the layers are quite thick, I will have the button holes professionally done by Mick at the Quick Buttonhole Service in Redfern.
I'm not sure what I'm sewing next - I have selected patterns for four lovely pieces of cloth from my stash. Who knows, I might even draw lots. Meanwhile, happy sewing!
