I have completed my first lined, jacket without a pattern to follow, just logical thinking and playing around with ideas in my head.
The out come has been a success!
When I say no pattern...I didn't buy one from the shop and follow it, instead I fished out two jackets in my wardrobe and used them as a guideline.
I cut out my pieces, and stitched away to every moment I had free with out Summah climbing over me or the cat for that matter.
How did the idea of making a jacket ever enter my head???
it was all because I visited a fabric shop last week, browsed the remnant bin and found 4 fabulous fabrics that I could make winter clothes from.
They were bargains, 3 out of 4 were less than $10 and decent sized pieces.
The front panel on my jacket was most expensive as it is wool this cost me $12.50. The black fabric on my jacket was $5, lining $5 the ribbing was an expensive wool cardigan that shrunk in the wash and I held onto it, and I'm glad I did!!
A new winter jacket for less than $25 and no one else has one like it!
My new winter jacket, and yes I checked that I could fit a jersey on underneath to layer up.
On to the next new piece of clothing.
