Reinvention: 60’s Brocade Jacket, Part Two

I’ll be the first to admit it, when I started the reconstruction of this little jacket – and basing my viewpoint on how my previous sewing projects have gone – I thought it’d be easy, something I’d smash out in a weekend.

The universe, however, had other plans for this project – between getting not enough daylight to take good quality photos, being accosted by a virus for an entire week, wedding activities, and weekends away from home, I ended up grabbing whatever time I could to work on it at night after work, and then waiting until there was a free weekend with good light, to take photos of what I’d gotten through. Phew!

Here’s where I’m up to so far, it’s coming along rather nicely:

    This project is like unwrapping a gift bit by bit. Can’t wait to see the finished product:)
