Another Sheila Jacket

A while back I posted about my student - Sheila - a wonderful sewer, designer and jacket maker extraordinaire. She made a great jacket in my weeklong workshop in Greenville, NY and the added plus of being able to wear them to work everyday, which her co-workers greatly appreciate. She emailed me pictures of her most recent jacket made during the Christmas break! The jacket is called "Albany Autumn" - how appropriate, inspired from the beautiful autumn foliage in Greenville (near Albany). The base fabric is an interesting black and white tree print which works well for highlighting the bright colored leaves on top.

Sheila chose a light colored tree print fabric to use on the sleeves and jacket bottom.
Notice the wonderful subtle decorative stitching - adds a lot to the surface.
Sheila's choice of background fabric was a good one and easy to see in this detail - a great combination of fabrics and buttons. Enjoy wearing it Sheila, I know others will love seeing you in it and thanks for sharing! Coming Soon... Bear tracks and Murder on Bridge Hill (my aunts property in Greenville, NY where there was a murder many years ago - SPOOKY STUFF)
