Coat & Jacket Weather

Here are a few of the finishing touches on my Spearmint jacket.

Time (or a lack thereof) got in the way of finishing the project .  And then it was more of “out of sight, out of mind” for another month or so.

Then my Cherry Gala Gown took over the sewing room and everything else took a back seat.

Since my choice of fabric was going to preclude me from wearing this in really cold weather, it seemed like a good time to finish it up.

And there were really not that many steps left.  Although, it can be hard to remember where you left off when a project is put on hold for too long! 

Just a bit of hemming . . .

And pulling out all those basting stitches . . .

And the jacket is complete!

[The fabric for this project was received in exchange for my contributions as a Britex Guest Blogger.]


  1. I can sooo relate to a project getting out of sight for a month. I currently have a bra that is half sewn and dying to be completed. Love the red of the fabric and all the interior details.

  2. Sometimes it's nice to come back to an old project, particularly if I was tired of it or rushing through it when I put it down. Looks like it's going to be very pretty.

  3. I look forward to seeing photos of you in it. or on the dressform. The bias ripple collar intrigues me. Lovely color, btw.
