Mostly about sewing! However, I may wander off onto other topics from time to time...

Adri jacket done
Twelve teeny mitered corners later, and I have a jacket. Actually, it's more of an overshirt than a jacket, but for summer choir wear it'll be just about perfect. Once I decide I can live with the inevitable linen creases. ;-).
I finally decided to skip the bias binding on the neckline; if I'd had the time and the inclination I could've made some samples and figured out a way to miter a binding-meets-hem corner, but the linen was stable and pressed very nicely so I decided to just turn the seam under and go. Here's a detail shot of the collar/neckline/mitered corners; you can click to make it big enough to actually see.
This will probably show up in tomorrow's choir wardrobe post.
