mae's new jacket
soft, dark denim and a cute, brushed, cotton drill, lining with limey-yellow lady bugs. it feels so great to use this lining, proof that i actually DO need all the fabric in my stash. i found it at a local op shop a couple of years ago and immediately thought it would be a perfect lining for a dark denim or navy blue coat. ta-dah! this is one of the patterns i bought on etsy and it was really quite easy, only taking me about four hours (and that included quite a lot of time staring at the instructions, trying to figure out just how on earth i was supposed to attach the lining on the sleeves). i think i might tackle another one once i get a few more things knocked off my list, i found an awesome, dusty pink, plaid wool at st vinnies earlier this week that is screaming "winter coat".
