Houndstooth Jacket!





When I was testing my buttonholes,I decided I really didn't like the way the wooden buttons looked against the fabric, so I made a quick stop at Hancock's on the way home from church yesterday afternoon and picked up buttons that I liked much better (and a few patterns; that'll be tomorrow's post). Then I sewed the buttonholes and fraychecked them well before I went back for the evening sewing session. Being so close to 'done', I just sat up last night and put the buttons on.

I'll probably do the review on the pattern this afternoon, but for now here's the photos of my very COMFORTABLE, very WARM Anything But Ordinary Jacket!

  1. Very nice Lisa. I hope you get a chance to make the top too. You'll love it's versatility. I used a home dec poly, that textured up after I washed it, for my first ABO jacket last spring. I pressed the seams open because of all the bulk and was happy with that. Can't wait to try the new jacket pattern too!

  2. Fantastic! I love the way the collar converts - very useful here in New England, probably not a big deal for you! The black buttons were worth the stop - they look great.

  3. Good job on the jacket Lisa. The coloring/print suits you and it looks great with the jeans.

  4. Lisa - its a great jacket and I love the fabric! But I am sooooo impressed with how many things you have sewn out of your queue! You may be tired of it but you are making some serious progress.
