 from ordinary fleece to tailored jacket...
Let me introduce you to my great friend Jane. She is an artist in many ways, playing the violin and painting. Jane also is a talented craft woman: potter, quilter, knitter and crocheter. If you are living around Berryville, Boyce or Millwood, you might have seen her work in an exhibition.
It will  soon be her birthday and I could not miss the opportunity to sew something personal for her.
As she likes easy care garments and glittery fabrics, I choose to combine fleece and a sparkling organza.
I was inspired by a princess line jacket pattern with fanciful flounces from a Burda Plus magazine.
The model has an edge to edge front, so I added an overlap and three buttons for closure to give more warmth.
I was also pretty sure that she would like pockets, subtle and elegant, I mean bound ones of course!
At last, I fully lined the jacket.
I can't wait to see Jane and shall have my camera ready when she  opens her present.
