    1. Kyle it's a light weight double knit that I found at Goodwill to use for making muslins. It actually turned out to be quite a whimsical little knit jacket and who knows - I just might wear it.

  10. Hi Faye,

    I totally get the 'sew when u can' mindset! It's definitely better than zero!

    The fabric is cute. Perfect for Summer! Hope the jacket turns out alright.

  11. I am so fearful of notched collars, because of their trickiness. A lil sewing definitely goes a long way. I do the bulk of my sewing on the weekend and during the week tinker around with a lil sewing.
