This fabric is Eternal Sunshine by Amy Butler for Free Spirit Fabrics. The pattern is Kwik Sew 3732. I used this pattern in 2011 for one of my favorite jackets so it was easy to decide to use it again. I still have to put 2 buttonholes on this--I found the perfect buttons in my stash for this jacket. Some of the prints in this line are quite large--it will be very interesting to see how the other 20 members of the Education Team use their fabrics. I'll have group photos when I get home from Houston, mid-November.
This fabric is from Cherrywood Fabrics, with an old Hoffman print as the accent piece. The pattern is the Kanustandit Jacket for Design and Planning Concepts. It's an old pattern, I first made it in 2005. The sleeves are kimono-style so they look slouchy on the hanger, a little less so on me. Again, I'll be eager to see the other Cherrywood garments our Team makes.
We wear these garments on specific days so, as a team, we look recognizable, but everyone chooses their own fabrics/colors from what is offered and we can make whatever we want. Here is a shot from 2015--we are wearing Vintage Made Modern by Amy Barickman for RJR Fabrics:
Now I have a couple quilts to finish quilting--one of them is going with me to hang in the office. That helps the space look more home-y, less industrial.
And I'm going to do another small sew-a-long put together by my friend Lori D at Humble Quilts. She is calling this one "Quilters Madder"--it will be small and scrappy, right up my alley. Here are my fabrics pulled quickly from pieces I am also using in Circa 2016 and Rajah Revisited:
Good job on the jackets! I think the last time I made a jacket for myself was about 15 years ago, when my youngest daughter got married.ReplyDelete
I just pulled my fabrics for Lori's SAL and am about to do the cutting.
Good logic on your choice of fabrics. : )
Love your apparel! Glad you are joining in the sewing, although you'll have to finish it when you get back from Houston.ReplyDelete
