Jacket with Fringes!
This was quite an adventure for me!
I knew that I wanted to sew a jacket of the boucle fabric.
I found the right pattern I wanted to use in BurdaStyle issue 02/2013.
I put the pattern and the fabric in a closet, and then I forgot it until now...!
I have tried to match the fabric at the seams.
I read in the instruction that I could make my own fringes,
but it was different from last time I made fringes.
This time I should use a double layer and sew it to the jacket
after the jacket was finished, even with the lining!
Since I had already made the fringes I did sew them around the whole jacket.
Anyway, I made the fringes for the pockets and around the sleeve hem as in the instruction.
I have also used a soft brush and steamed the fringes so they should be more fuzzy.
I have to tell that I'm really Happy how it turned out at the end!
The wool-jersey skirt is from an earlier project.
I have inserted "fish-shoulder pads"
I have used "invisible" snap-buttons.
