Oh this jacket. I started it MONTHS ago. I’m so bored of looking at this thing! lol Plus looking at it now I spent too much on it.
I could’ve fit this thing better I admit. But its good enough for me!
I did some light (and I mean light) tailoring on it. Its got twill tape on the roll line and a back stay from muslin. I also did bound button holes for the first time, not too bad. Overall it went together easy, just time consuming.
The best part of course is the inside. A little leprechaun surprise:
Here’s a close up of the button holes and lining.
And the back
And that’s about it! I hope you guys all have a Fantastic St. Paddy’s Day, it is the most wonderful time of year after all. ;D
