So this weekend I am starting a new project. It is getting kind of summery here but I still want to make a light wool jacket... Weird I know, but I think it can be very useful on chilly evenings so I am up to it!
The original version is this one.
It has been perfectly made and extremely helpfully explained by Tany. And there are some other great version1 and version2. Showing all these I must confess I am going to change the model - I tried to accept it, but this lampshade sleeve just didn't grow on me. And I am a bit dull in being afraid to get cold with shorter sleeves...
This is what I am making:
A bit boring indeed but the versatility is appealing to me. Or I need something more demure in my wardrobe for the moments I go for the unnoticeable yet chic casual way.
The fabric I am going to use is labelled a wool linen addressing the way it is woven. It's black:
It is soft and quite thin so I might not be too warm on the other side. Don't know what lining I will use. Lets live and see.
Update: Just got the idea to maybe funk it up with some piping. Don't know what colour or material though. Any suggestions?
Yet another update: 75% of the votes till now go for pink. Guys, sorry but I am not the pink kind of girl (yes, I know, I like it in graphics) but I actually own only one pinkish T-shirt and it is more fuchsia... And I wear a lot of black. So I am thinking maybe grey or even silver piping. Or even gold (I treasure gold for its kitschy potential). Maybe black lack piping but this can get cheesy...
