Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Sewing

I can’t believe that it is already the 1st of July. Thats half of 2016 gone already and what a crazy six months it has been. (No I’m not talking about Brexit or any other politics related stuff here, just sewing!) I wrote a similar post this time last year here and wow how things […]

Wool Jacket finished!

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Sewing

So a few months ago I picked up some beautiful blue Welsh Wool from a popular Internet Auction site. £15 lighter I received just over 3m of the stuff. A Very nice blue with golden/green flecks.

If you have read any of my posts you will know I love making shirts and jackets. Tailored jackets give me a lot of satisfaction.

So my last post I told you about my wonderful fashion idea! Yes the Tweedaree. Well to be honest I’ve not done a lot about it as I have been busy with other things. I did draft some ideas of what I want them to look like. Imagine a waistcoat/trouser all-in-one. I did buy some […]

Linen Summer Jacket part 3 – Collar, Lapels and sleeves

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Sewing

So part 3 of my Linen Jacket sew-along and we move onto the collar/lapels and sleeves. All three are enough to put fear into anyone who sews. I look back at my first jacket and wince when I see a wonky collar; notched lapels where the notches were different shapes and sizes and sleeves with […]
