But For Now...



I am keeping with wool jackets and this lightweight jacket is constructed from two different tweeds. The main body is made from a black/grey tweed and the facings from a brown/grey herringbone. Both are incredibly soft.


The jacket is fitted with a slight flare to the back skirt.


The front has a draped side which creates a lovely cowl neck when fastened. All edges of jacket are left unfinished so will slightly fray.


Because the jacket is so soft, it is ideal for wearing like a cardigan under heavy coats for extra warmth on these very cold days but will also look great come spring worn on top of a simple dress. The simple dress in the photo is this dress made in a wool jersey with a cotton voile trim added to the hemline. Again, another preview!

  3. Thank you very much! I have another soft one ready to be stitched and I would like to try making it in a jersey fabric too.

    Yes, Lucie, I think my photos are getting better thanks to this wonderful black wall and the light that comes in the north facing window. Some of the results have been really gorgeous but unfortunately not that great for showing off the clothes!
