This winter I’m sewing along with Tasia at Sewaholic.net. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I are all making her Minoru jacket pattern. This post marks the beginning of the saga.
Today marks the first official day of the Sewaholic Minoru jacket Sew-Along. I was planning on making my version out of a sweatshirt knit since the line drawing looked like a classy, comfy sweatshirt hoodie to me. But, over holiday in Santa Barbara, I fell in love with this “Painted Me a ?” cotton, lycra blend from Fine Fabrics. I think it’ll make a wonderfully funky jacket. Plus, I just love my painted maxi dress, so why not fill a closet with painted pieces? The lining will be a gold Bemberg rayon. I wanted subtle since I didn’t want it to compete with the exterior. Now to find a 28″ separating zipper to match. I’ve looked several places already to no avail. Any suggestions?
