It's a done deal. My Missoni knockoff is officially entered over on Pattern Review. You can check it out here.
I have to say it was no easy task figuring out how to navigate the PR process on my iPad. After a couple of wrong turns, and what seemed like endless shuffling of my photos back and forth between several apps, I finally got it posted. Sewing the jacket was actually the easiest part of the whole process! Still, I have to say it's been great fun. Who knows, I just might enter another contest one of these days.
I wasn't lying ....it's very green!
Here I'm wearing the jacket with a version of Folkwear's Victorian Shirt. I changed the front placket slightly and added French cuffs. The pants are my dark brown velvet Jeds.
I was limited to only 2 pictures for the contest, so I tried out one of the many free photo collage apps. Yay! I figured it out! I'll probably be using it a lot in the future. It's quite fun to play with.
The voting starts on February 2nd. Hint..hint...
I want to work on one other winter project, a wool / mohair Finlayson sweater, then I'm thinking SPRING! A Junya Watanabe inspired jacket perhaps.
As always, thanks so much for your encouragement. Happy sewing!
