It's a Done Deal !!

The gray wool felted jacket,  heavily appliqued, is finished.  Yay!


I added a modesty panel on the left front, and attached frog closures.  I can see I need to add a snap below the last frog to keep that area closed.  

I had a good time making this jacket.   It's the kind of creative sewing that I love to do. 

Have a great weekend, sewing, and otherwise!

Gwen, I love your jacket. I would feel very lucky and very smug if I could be standing in a line and have people wonder where or how my jacket came to be. Thank you for being a wonderful inspiration. I also want to thank you for your shoulder pad tutorial. I missed that when you posted it, but I want to be able to do that also.

It came out nice. Fun to do stuff like that. Makes it all rewarding when wearing. Frogs look great. I haven't used them in anything in years.

Amazing, Fantastic, Gorgeous, Beautiful, Etc..... I cannot really come up with an adjective that describes how I feel about this jacket. I can't wait to do another felted project. I have a bunch of sweaters and a blazer that are felted and ready to be made into something. Gotta get Easter done first.

It turned out lovely. Where did you purchase the wool? Thanks for the shoulder pad tutorial.

Audrey said...

Gwen, I wanted to add my compliments to the many well deserved ones you have already received. The embellishment is so well done; the layout compliments the style of the jacket, the colors are eye catching without being garish, and hand sewing is beautiful. I just love this jacket! I also chuckle every time I see the Big Girl Panty sign in the background of your photos.
