Boucle jacket and top

RhettaRic | Posted in Photo Gallery on

Here are a couple of my recent finished items. The jacket was my first attempt at lining something. And the top was out of some very cheap muslin, made without a pattern, and an attempt at making a design to embroider. I think it will be a summer morning lounge wear only.

    RhettaRic:  I love the colour of your jacket and it looks great on you.  I also like the peasant look of your embroidered top.  Such an inspiration for me.  Thanks Scrubble4

      Thanks, Scrubble!  I haven't played with embroidery much yet, but I think it could become a new addiction.  Now that I've seen Threads' tutorial on the jacket pattern - same exact one I used - I want to make another.  I hand sewed the lining in at the armholes and now I see that isn't necessary!

    Great jacket that fits you very nicely. And that color looks so good on you. The embroidered blouse is good, too, I would not just save it for lounge-wear.

      Josefly, thanks!  I think I'll get a lot of wear out of the jacket.  The top was claimed by my mom last night.  So I'll be making another.  Perhaps I'll splurge and even get a pattern.  Actually there's a downloadable Mexican peasant top pattern online, and it has a yoke.  I think these remind me of something I wore when I was young.

    Beautiful work. I agree with Josefly that the blouse should be used for more than just lounge-wear. Your skills look top-notch. I can't believe that the jacket was your first attempt at lining. It looks great.Sherry

    Great color, and you look good in it.  I couldn't pull up the second flicker, it was taking forever.  You do wonderful work.  I have yet to line any thing.  But it's coming up this season for me to do.  So, I hope I am as successful as you have been.

    You did a great job on your jacket and top.  The top looks good with your jeans--no need to just wear it at home!

      Thank you Rodezzy, Vicki and Sherry! I love seeing everyone's projects. Though I've always been partial to winter stuff, maybe playing with more embroidery will make me a bit more of a warm weather fan.
