So this weekend the five pieces of felt were transformed into a jacket. I am rather pleased with the result. I'm still not convinced that red is exactly my color but it isn't as bad as I had thought it might be.
It was quite an experience to sew something made-to-measure. We sewed the whole jacket first using an inexpensive cotton fabric so that everything could be altered according to our wishes - longer sleeves, smaller waist, lowered hem - you name it. Naturally we took the paper cut home and I am thinking of sewing another jacket in a thinner cloth, perhaps in gray. It is amazing how this trial jacket hugs my body...
