And Sew On....Part 2

Spent most of the day yesterday getting my pattern cut out and embroidering the panels for the front. Looking good so far. I certainly didn't buy too much fabric, I was sweating whether I was going to get it all out of the 2 yards I bought. I only have little inch scraps left. Next time I'll make sure I get 2 1/2 yards for a jacket. Need to make sure I don't mess anything up or I'll have to go and get more.

And Sew On....

Finally, two days that I don't need to go anywhere, and I can finally work on some projects. I have plenty that I could work on, but decided that I wanted to do a jacket for fall, so that's what I'm doing.

The pattern is Kwik Sew 2801, and I'm doing View A, but in one fabric only. I picked up a piece of polyester ultrasuede last week in a mossy green.

I am embroidering a design down each side of the front. I had a perfect varigated thread, and decided on some pumpkin leaves from OESD's Shades of Fall Collection #12218. I'll post more pictures as I make some progress.
