Big News!!!! I finished my Burda jacket tonight at 9:00 p.m. It's too late to take pictures, but I will be doing a post tomorrow in the daylight. I can't even tell you the sense of relief I feel to have this finished. It was so hard to stay focused on just this project. For everyone who chimed in with an encouraging word along the way, "THANK YOU!" It helped me so much to push through, and I am pleased with the end result. Here are a couple more detail shots:
Front button closure.
Hand stitched lined back vent.
Time to do a Happy Dance, because I get to have a wondering eye for new patterns:
Perhaps a vest/skirt combo? Or a simple knit dress? Anything that doesn't have 16 pattern pieces please!
And new fabrics:
"Pure bliss I tell you!" I'll be back with you tomorrow after an early morning soccer game :)
My name is Shannon, but my siblings call me Mushy... I am a 46 year old wife and mom. I started sewing in junior high or high school on my mom's Viking. I had an amazing Home Economics teacher who taught me solid techniques. By my junior year, I had sewn a Vogue Bellville Sassoon dress, rated "advanced" for prom. Sewing runs in the family. I was bound to catch the "bug". I hope to inspire you to pursue your sewing interests as I have been inspired by others in the sewing community to pursue mine. Thanks for visiting!
