Sewist: Kathy

Project: Jacket
Fabric: 67% wool, 26% alpaca, 7% polyamide
Lining: rayon twill
Closures: large shaped wooden buttons from AAF
Pattern: Vogue
Notes: Kathy made a classic, double breasted winter coat with her own twist and many hours of hand sewing. The fabric she chose is a luxurious, multi-colored brushed wool and alpaca blend. Her additions included four unique buttons with a contrasting fabric used for the bound buttonholes and a 3/8" flat piping in a silk print used between the jacket facing and the lining. Kathy has a warm winter coat that is a beautiful reflection of her creativity.
