APPLE GREEN "LUCY" JACKET

I am making progress on my apple green "Lucy" Jacket. I'm very much in love with this style and glad to see that it has carried over into the spring/summer fashions in one form or another. I'm seeing long sleeved, 3/4" sleeved and cropped sleeved ones in all the stores and fashion catalogs; and plan on making several for the new season for myself.

My muslin is as finished as I can get it - I guess. I even put the collar and front facing on it because I wanted to make sure that I knew how to do it before cutting the fashion fabric. Here's a picture of the finished muslin; I plan on completing the jacket this weekend - maybe.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am impressed with how you're throwing yourself back into sewing and doing it so well. I will have to try the mousepad under the pedal trick too.
