It's Chinese New Year next week and the way the days fall mean we have holidays here from Monday to Wednesday so a nice long weekend ahead to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. In theory I could get lots of sewing done, but in reality I will probably get less done than usual so I wanted to give you a sneak preview of what I am working on.
Despite jackets being one of my favourite things to wear I haven't made one in ages. All that is left to do is buying a button, sewing the buttonhole, hem & lining, but here are the bits that look finished! This is, or rather will be, a BurdaStyle magazine pattern from 2007 made up in a grey metallic tweed. I'll post full details when it is finished.
Kung Hei Fat Choy!

The shoulders on the jacket look very professional. Love the fabric.ReplyDelete
Wow! I'm with Gail those shoulders and sleeves are just awesome. Happy Chinese New Year to you too!ReplyDelete
That jacket looks very promising. Happy Dragon year. I just sent out my cards, which is my excuse for missing Christmas cards. Even after all these years, I still miss the wonderful Lunar New Year sales in Central and the long lunches in the old Dragon Boat Bar of the Hilton.ReplyDelete
Kung Hei Fat Choy to you too! Loving the look of the jacket.ReplyDelete

The jacket looks fabulous, elegant and well done - perfect workmanship.ReplyDelete
