Ugh. I have to take my pockets off the jacket because they are too low (like in the lining seam allowance) and possibly need to remake them (smaller). So, in the meantime, here’s a peak at what I’ll also (theoretically) be sewing in February.
Home dec fabric from Joann: $24 Zippers: $10.00 Cording: $1.50 False Bottom: $1 Interfacing: Stash (but Peltex 71 on sale Valentine’s weekend if I need it)
I’d like to make this for the handbag contest on PatternReview.com which started on Feb. 1. I hear it’s tough sewing and that prayers are needed in the construction. So it’ll all be done on my beloved vintage Morse and if need be, on my friend Lilia’s industrial. I still need to order real purse feet. I love the button idea, but I want real ones for this.
It took me a while to emotionally let go of the $20 a yard Vespa print. It still hurts a little. But, how CUTE would it have been??
