I am off to Juneau today - very exciting to be getting 'off the rock' at last - I have not traveled further than 10 miles from home since September!  Yesterday I finished up some projects in the studio, always a good feeling.  Here is the jacket for the local wearable art extravaganza next month:
Jacket - front
Jacket - back
Jacket - lining
I must say I am disappointed with the fit - it 'swims' on me, as my grandmother would have said - but think I can correct this with clever addition of ties at the sides somehow.
Detail - I had to figure out my own construction method to line this unlined pattern (a 'Park Bench' design), which was a fun challenge and allowed for adding a bit of interest with covered seams inside the garment (gold and black check).  I loved the pattern maker's 'permission slip' which was included in the envelope, encouraging freedom to alter the construction at will!
I will see you when I get back to the island on Sunday (if the jet makes it in)!  Happy weekend to you.


  1. a joyful coat of many colors..
