After seven intensive days in class and about 4 hours since I returned home my jacket is nearing completion. I still have about 3-4 hours of hand sewing including the pockets to go. These photographs show some of the journey from fitting, cutting, quilting to attaching the lining.
Also wanted to talk about the wildly eccentric Jimmy's Buttons - his shop is such a mess - disorganised boxes, buttons all over the floor and the crazy Jimmy himself. But amongst the chaos are absolute gems. I bought 5 mts of beautiful black and gold trim for another jacket, some great black lace and an interesting bronze beaded piping for a neckline, all for a song.
More posts are on their way.
