Decision made

Glad to know I’m not the only one dithering in the sewing room. Vivien: you were right, a jacket was (almost) what was needed. The day after my previous blogpost about not being able to decide I suddenly knew what I wanted to do. A jacket/cardigan from fabric that I bought last year at the fabric market in Utrecht. I had it in my hands several times and each time I was unsure about what I wanted to make from it. Now it was clear: a jacket with a black accent. It was in my hands last Thursday too. and at a subconscious level it must have remained in my mind.

I took my chances and used a Lekala pattern that I bought a few months ago. The sleeves are a bit wide but otherwise it’s quite good. It’s a cardigan pattern so that might explain the wider sleeves. I will take them in a bit. Also the dressform doesn’t do it justice. It has nice shape in the waist. I’ll line it and when it’s finished I will show it on me.  On my screen it looks black and white, but it’s off-white.


  1. Lovely! You see, you can't go wrong with an in-between-the-seasons jacket. I find I get more wear out of garments for transitional seasons than anything else - I imagine that our similar climates mean the same for you. Enjoy the new jacket; perhaps a new dress or trousers to go with it?

  2. I love your jacket; a fan of black and white, too.

  3. It is looking quite good so far!
    I am very happy for you that your Lekala pattern turned out good.

  4. Doesn't it feel good to finally make a decision? This jacket is lovely!
