Project: Denim Jacket
Pattern: Kwik Sew 2895
Fabric: Denim from Hancock Fabrics
It came out just as I envisioned. I wish I had put some of those waist tabs on the back/side of the waistband, but the opportunity had passed by the time I realized that I wanted them. The length is just right and the welt pockets turned out fine. I tacked the pocket bags to a seam inside to avoid having them show when I put my hands in.
From the side you can see that I used the back side of the fabric on the undersleeve. I wanted a bit more of the bright blue to show from the back.
The buttons are not on the sleeves. Somehow I miscalculated the number required and I had to order 8 more. I decided to install them after my order comes, in case something goes wrong. I’d rather have two that don’t match than only one…
I’ll let Brunhilde wear it until the buttons come–which I ordered off Etsy, BTW. The only ones available locally were shiny silver. These are silver with some brass showing.
I *heart* them.
Meanwhile, I’m moving on. My SIL and I are doing recycled/upcycled/used/handmade this Christmas, so I’ve got work to do! I’m hoping to make a few knit tops and such for myself in-between those projects. I’ll be in and out here on the blog.
We’re getting ready for Thanksgiving this week and family is coming in. Gobble,gobble!!
