More Jacket Progress



3 comments:

  1. Fran, I'm following along on your jacket adventure. I remember seeing CG wear this one at Expos here in Atlanta. It is a lovely jacket. I especially like the belt treatment.

    I've only made one of her patterns - a princess seamed sheath. It only had 4 sizes in it which surprised me. And I see from your write-up that this only has one size in it. I'm surprised as her clothes are always so beautifully fitted. Few fit opportunities with so few sizes to choose from.

    Anyway this will be lovely. I'm enjoying following along. Thanks.

    BTW, headed to NH Thursday. Guess I'll try to get by Fabric Fix and Sawyer Brook. :)

    1. Hi Martha,
      Enjoy your time in NH. I love Sawyer Brook. There are actually two other fabric stores -- a bit of a drive, but if you're here for a while. One is Apple Annie -- it's in Swansea, MA. Ann Kendall owns it and she's lovely. Fabric is great and you can purchase on line as well. Also, in Brattleboro, VT is Delectable Mountain Cloth -- tiny, tiny store -- all natural fabric. Even if you don't get to either of them, they have lovely websites.

      Travel safe, Fran
