January had me working on Butterick B6433. My first iteration of the jacket just did not do well. The twill fabric I had in my stash was far too thick and stiff so when I tried it on, it just didn’t hang well. In addition, I used a lightweight cotton for the lining which did the garment no favors and I found it difficult to put on and take off. Again, not a good choice.
So, I had to order new fabric and am now waiting for my lining fabric to arrive before I continue.
Much better fit and drape and I am quite happy with it. I have added the sleeves and belt since I took these pictures.
I was happy that I did not have to lengthen this as I typically have to do with tops and jackets. I am also quite please with the way it is turning out (except I did not see the handprints my son left on the mirror until after I had posted the picture, lol).
While I wait for the lining, I have been making other things, too. I found out that I am going to be a grandmother for the first time so I have gone nuts with all the things I can make for baby. Case in point:
Burp cloths coming up! Perfect use for some of the fabric stash I had on hand.
That’s it for now. Happy sewing!
