I finally finished this jacket! All I really had to do was hem it and add a button for which I used my favorite thread loop buttonhole technique. I love this 'library jacket'. It has sweet pleats in the back which you can see in the bottom picture. The fabric isn't real seersucker but it mimicks the classic southern staple. The sweet 30's reproduction strawberry fabric complimented the blue strips perfectly. I enjoy mixing fabrics that may not have ever met otherwise! I used the same japanese sewing pattern to make this a couple of years ago. You can really see how much B has grown! In fact, I had to draft a larger sized pattern for the library jacket.
These are some more photographs carefully edited by my husband. He showed me how to correct my ISO issue so I can upload my work without needing his editing skills. He didn't mind helping, but I'm sure it would get old quickly especially because I'm so darn picky when it comes to my blog! Generally, I try to make my photographs appear as real as possible - using natural light and very minimal editing. I usually only need to crop my photos and maybe lighten them up a smidge.
In other news, I'm excited to tell you I have finally finished my wonky log cabin quilt and the giveaway will be up and running this coming Friday.
