Here are two smart garments made by Mary to inspire your autumn wool sewing!
The pink bouclé jacket, made from Butterick 5927, is evocative of the Chanel classic, with a collarless jewel neckline, high-hip length, and richly textured fabric. A collarless jacket is not only stylish, it's also a great time saver! The sewing is quicker without any collar pieces to fuss with, making this jacket quick and easy for so many skill levels.
The vest, made from Butterick 5958 in a thick wool Melton, is shaped to the figure with princess seams which are in turn highlighted with topstitching. A unique button becomes the focal point when paired with a solid fabric.
Come into Treadle and get inspired! We'll see you there.
