Marcy’s Jacket Finished

What began as a great pattern, ended as a great pattern. Here is the finished product. I was thinking it would be scary to have Marcy see it up close but the sewing techniques make it fairly easy to avoid many of the “this is so homemade” telltale signs.
I’m very pleased with the way the different elements of the fabric came together-even if it is subtle. I’m wearing it today to the Puyallup (pew ahl’ up-according to the locals) Sewing and Stitching Expo in Washington. Having a great time-cherry blossoms and daffodils are out-raining and fifties. An added bonus is that I’m running into my Paris traveling companions!

  1. Kristin- Have a great time at the Expo. I’ll hope to hear about what you learned! The way in which you combined the patterns in this jacket are beautiful. I like the collar. Jeanne

  2. Kristin–The fabric is fantastic in the jacket–I love that you take us on your various trips around the country and the world! I only wish I had as much time to sew for myself! The Material Girls keep me inspired! Thanks! Sue
