Earlier this week I finally finished a jacket that I felt I'd been working on forever. This was another garment from my "making yardage" project that I wrote about several weeks ago. I called this one "Out of the Box" for several reasons. It was the first fitted jacket that I've made in quite a long time and it is perhaps a more dramatic design that I typically do. At least when I started it, it seemed a bit "wild" to me, but when it was finished I was very pleased. I don't think you'd have to be very daring to wear this. What do you think? I couldn't believe I had enough scraps that went together well enough to make this. I'm so glad I saved them.
When you come to my studio to check it out, you'll have to notice the beautiful hand-made fused glass buttons from Penny Faich. Not only did the color work with this, but they even have triangles on them. I bought the buttons from Penny at least 2-3 years ago when we were vending together at a quilt show. I was so glad to finally have just the right project for them.
The jacket is a size medium, fully lined, and washable. Call or e-mail for purchase information.
