Fast Really Can Be Fabulous!July 11, 2017 / byRhonda Buss / Categories : Feeds
Here's my almost finished jacket.
I like the unexpected touch :)
I did make a slight alteration to the jacket and tapered it in at the waistline. I did find the pattern very true to size, so pay attention to the measurements prior to cutting.
The jacket is designed with raglan sleeves, so it's easy to fit and even easier to sew.
I have not sewn in the pockets at this point. I wanted to get the jacket together before adding the pockets. If you've never done a welt pocket, by all means, give it a try on a scrap prior to sewing it into your jacket. But, the instructions really make the process quite simple, so give it a try.

Did you know that 81% of all merchandise sold […]read more
There have been a few snowflakes this season, but just a coating here and there that didn’t ‘stick’ around for too long. Philly’s first true snowfall happened last Saturday, December 9th, at the last workshop of 2017. I know it sounds cliche, but it truly was the best (and merriest) way to close out yet…read more
