I finished! I'm so thrilled to have completed this. I'm not sure why but this has been a very gratifying project. I liked the whole process. I was kinda stuck here: (photo below).
I wasn't quite sure how it was going to come together. I always have trouble at first to figure out how the liner is going to fit in the ...whatever it is I'm sewing at the moment with a liner. This was no different. I did spend quite a bit over an hour on this today but most of it was thinking about how to marry the two pieces so I do not feel like that counts toward my one hour. Anyway I have a finished jacket. I'm not crazy about the button, but that can be changed (and probably will be).
And I hope to be able to try it on one very sweet little girl this weekend! Tomorrow I will measure and see how close to a size 5 it actually finished at. And I was going to make a little scarf, however, this wool is not the nicest I have felt and I don't think it will be very comfy on the skin which is why I lined every inch of it with the nice soft French General fabric.
I really cant wait to try another piece of kids clothing. I am very glad I took the opportunity to do this challenge. Even if I didn't make a lot of pieces. At least I finished the one I set out to finish! That's good enough for me!
