My own sewing Masterpiece – a jacket

When I started working in the laboratory I shared my office with a co-worker. Over the years she became my favorite because she always has been calm when it has been stress at work and I could always talk with her when I had problems.

We even had the same habit to be very picky in all we do hihi

Now she retired 😦

Of course she got a departing gift when she left but I wanted to make her something special.

She loves to wear jackets all the time. I asked her if she would like to have a new one made by me and she said yes 🙂

I made a lot of photos from all fabrics suitable for jackets in my fabric store.

She choosed “her” fabric and I started my first jacket in my sewing course. Lets say it straight, without help in my course I couldnt have made it!

A jacket with “her” fabric only would have been too boring. So I added some black woolen to it.

For cutting the fabric I needed 3 saturdays!!! I wanted the pattern be perfect.

Yes I’m picky hihi 😀

To make this jacket needed way more time then I expected but it was worth all this time.

I call this jacket my Masterpiece ❤ ❤ ❤

I’m still missing you at work Misses H. 🙂

On the next photos you can see why I needed 3 sewing courses to cut the fabric!
