It took most of the day to cut out (phew!), but now that I'm at the sewing stage my Watson jacket is coming along nicely. As much as I like quick and easy sewing projects, occasionally it's nice to settle in with a stack of CDs and a bar of Dairy Milk and spend a bit more time on something more involved, non? With lots of lovely details. Including bound buttonholes! Just as there is more than one way to sew a dart, there are various ways of constructing bound buttonholes, and I made these ones using a cross-between the methods outlined in Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing and Karen's e-book. Ooh they are lovely!
Do you like the lining? I found it on a recent sewing blogger trip to Goldhawk Road when Jen was in town. Here we all are captured on film sharing what we plan to buy... oh erm... all except me and Janene who were clearly not concentrating!
Hopefully I'll have the finished jacket to show you before too long...
