Most of the work on the back is done. One side still needs catch stitching of the seams. This fabric is a bit thick so it’s also about reducing bulk and keeping the seams flat. The flash light makes the piping shine a bit more than in real life. I’m beginning to feel this jacket might take as many hours as the classic Chanel jacket….
In between I made this cowl neck top. It’s the Day to night top from Maria Denmark. I made this top twice last year, don’t remember blogging about it. It’s an easy top to make. It took me about an hour and a half, including adding the sleeves from the Birgitte top. Both are good basics. I haven’t made the Birgitte top yet, I like the wider neckline of that one. A cowl neck is always good in my eyes. These patterns are pdf patterns, quick delivery. I still am not sold on the format of the pdf patterns. I still would prefer to have the printed pattern, or at least the option to have it as a printed pattern. For these relatively non complicated tops I didn’t mind.
