I did it. I finished another ‘unfinished project’. Of course, I used the worst fabric – quite possibly the worse fabric choice available. Well, maybe not that bad, but- The problem is the fabric is ‘flocked’. Who knew they made flocked fabric – I thought only Christmas trees got flocked. I purchased this fabric at JoAnns – where sometimes you can get some great fabrics and sometimes you don’t! Anyway, the jacket can’t be dry cleaned and I can’t wash it since I, of course, over tailored it. But – I DID FINISH IT! Here’s another look at the lining, too. I purchase this at Michael Levine’s and I love animal prints. The buttons are from my stash. I know there has been some blog-chatter about using ‘stuff’ from you stash just because its from your stash, but I love it when someone makes a garment and they use unique and interesting buttons/closures/trim or whatever that they bought years ago. There’s a story there and as a sewer I want to hear the story.
