On the jacket front, I've decided on the edge treatment. I will serge all the edges and then do more decorative bias strip on top. I've used this before and it adds some stability and looks pretty good. I also added some raglan shoulder pads and that makes a big difference as well. I have to cover them. The cuffs of the jacket have been painted as well and have decided on a few design changes. I may have a sash around it and an uneven hem. I'm going for a soft sweatery look here. It's developing as it goes along, the way these things often do for me.
Wasn't Claudine's guest post wonderful? I think we all learned a lot and that video was great. Sometimes more experienced sewists get a bad rap, We DO want to share our knowledge and see the next generation of sewists get quality info and so many do on venues like Pattern Review and through blog comments. I thank all the stitchers out there who so generously share what they know with those less experienced and so willing to learn. We are here to pass on the passion to everyone interested in using a needle. Each one teach one!
Here's hoping the current forecasted storm will provide a day off from work for sewing! Hope that happens to all of you who work in the Northeast outside the home. Stay safe and happy sewing!...Bunny
