treatment so that I can avoid the trauma of being computerless for a while and carry on learning about the blogging world.
I've been busy reading blogs, sewing and knitting over the last month. I have just completed a cardigan style jacket with some fabric that I bought in Walthamstow Market back in the depths of February, when I participated in my first meet up. Bought from the man outside Sainsburys it is a grey woollen fabric with a slight stretch to it. When I bought it the stallholder assured me it was 100% wool, I don't know if that is true but it is a lovely fabric, very warm and soft.
I wanted to make a jacket for work in a cardigan style, that was smart, easy to wear but at
the same time something a bit different. I decided on the jacket from this pattern and to make it
different I thought I would put the seams on the outside and zig zag them in silver metallic thread.
The fabric handled and made up beautifully, although it did fray quite a bit.
Here is the finished jacket, it is warm, practical and different enough from anything I could buy, to make it interesting. I also put metal buttons on it to co - ordinate with the metallic thread.
Here is the hem, edged in silver metallic thread and me wearing the jacket but not in work clothes. I generally look far more formal than this for work.
I am still learning about how to edit, take photos and publish on blogger so please
bear with me while I complete this steep learning curve. I did not want the next photo to appear but could not work out how to delete it and eventually got fed up with trying. It is a beautiful day out there and I want to go out and enjoy it before it before the sun disappears and we revert to winter again.
