Hot Patterns Wrapture jacket, first steps



The red Burda dress is done, pictures coming soon, so I started to work on a muslin for the above jacket pattern. I have never used this company before so I need to figure out how it fits me. I have always liked this design and I have a beautiful cotton twill from Michael's fabrics which I think will work well with this relaxed fit. Right now I'm thinking to do hand top stitching instead of the binding.

I will keep you updated of the progress.

Winter (After Arcimboldo) by Philip Haas at the National Gallery of Art

Recently I had the opportunity to visit the National Gallery of Art during the week, what a luxury, and I was able to wander and look at my own pace. When I came upon this sculpture of course I had to take a closer look. A special exhibit of Arcimboldo (16th century painter), who is famous for his "portraits" was due to open that weekend.

  1. I'll be interested to see how this pattern works for you. I've never used hot patterns but I like their designs very much.
