2019 Make 1
Need: A jacket for the days when it's decided not to be freezing cold any more...they're on their way right? Needs a hood, needs to be below the bum, needs pockets.
Pattern: Remember this? Well I likes what I likes so I set to cutting up that new/old version for a spanking new one. I traced each piece and added on some SA. A couple of changes to this version. lengthen the sleeves to accommodate turn ups and a slight adjustment to the size and shape of the pockets.
Fabric: I've got a bit of a small stash going at the moment so chose some medium weight navy cotton drill. I also chose to fully line this version so bought some navy and white stripe cotton.
Notions: I snaffled the toggles from the old version to use again on the waist cincher and used some lacing and petersham ribbon from my stash for the waistband and tie. I also happened to have an extra long zip in the stash too.
Thoughts: So happy with this make, and to actually be making again.....it's been bloody ages! It was quite a challenge to get back into, starting with a pattern with no instructions and all, but it got my making brain back in use and this actually made up pretty smoothly. It's blooming freezing today but I'm sure I'll be getting a good amount of wear form this in the coming months.
