So, I want to blog about a jacket that I made this past summer that I am so pleased with!
Here's my Butterick 5616! Even though I knew in the spring I wanted a white denim jacket for summer, I didn't get it done until almost the end of summer--mainly because I kept searching for just the right denim. A denim with just the right feel and weight--and that was actually white, not off white or cream.
I ended up using Hong Kong finishes and binding many of the edges with this pretty gray & white cotton print.
I learned to hammer thick denim seam junctions--and it really works to flatten them. Who knew? Well, me, now.
|Oh, and I faced the collar in the same pretty print|
Then. I found a wonderful product called SnapSetter. The selection of snaps is large, the prices & shipping are great and! The little attaching tool is so easy to use! Here's the SnapSetter link
I got quite a bit of wear out of it at the end of summer, before I left for frostier fall climes. I'm glad I refreshed my memory with this jacket--refreshment is needed while working on The Coat ;)
