work in progress: hooded winter jacket
I bought this oliver + s pattern before I knew if I was having a boy or girl. It’s good for either! I almost bought the little girl’s balloon dress, too, but I think I knew. So I put it down and just got the jacket pattern.
The outside is going to be light blue corduroy and the lining is a tree bark print cotton. I bought the corduroy as a back-up for a jacket project in college (I used a b+w houndstooth instead, good choice) and the lining was another impulse at the 1/2 price sale. No regrets. But it feels good to put it all to use. This jacket is going to take a few weeks, it has a difficulty level of 4 scissors out of 5!
