Bring on Autumn

008009 Copy (1) of 006 So I finally got Naomi, but only on the way to the car – paparazzi style. the jacket was finished with silver buttons and the skull fabric to line the hood, inside cuffs and under the pocket flap. During the sewing the brilliant idea to make it double breasted with 2 lines of buttons popped into my head and wouldn’t leave. Do you think the left over fabric could be found anywhere so back to Plan A. A second one in denim is in the pipeline instead, not that I am not super happy with how this one turned out.Copy (1) of 003

The Oliver + S pants had been cut out for months and finally made it to wearable. The buttons were taken off and then just sewed up the front panel. These are capri length but will be adding on a few inches and working out how to add a pocket into the contrast fabric and making a few for winter.
