|stitched with some variegated threads and mixed some of that taupe and beige thread that was wonderful to work with. don't know what it is or where it came from but it was in my stash.|
|i know some of you like to see the back of the stitching.|
stitched onto the jacket using a beige thread and stitched between the seems so it wouldn't show.
working on the pocket today...
|i hand dyed all the fabric and a bit of tatting left over from the plackets.|
the jacket is complete and i'm just adding the final pics so they will all be in the same place.
|the only machine stitching done was when i added the pocket to the jacket. i added a stiffener within so the pocket wouldn't flop and it was too thick to hand stitch.|
|the completed front|
i stopped in the thrift store this morning as all their clothing was 50% off. picked up a dress and a blouse that will be remade into something...the blouse is a large and the dress is a 2X so there's lots of cloth to work with. got them both for $3.
|cotton blouse with some nice cut work and cotton dress that will be perfect after some major alterations.|
