Lisa's September Plans

Suffering from 'garment sewing block', finally decided to make the unstructured jacket with a back tie, Pattern J... bottom far right image,  photo below...
Amazon.com image
 ...from Yoshiko Tsukiori's book 'Happy Homemade Sew Chic 20 Simple Everyday Designs'..... (purchased my copy from B&N... it is written in English)....
 ....using this almost silky-to-the-touch woven fabric recently purchased at Hancock Fabrics.  See that pretty selvage there?  I'm hoping to incorporate that into the jacket's front as part of the design.
I've never made a garment from hers, nor any Japanese sewing book before, so this will be a first.  I am looking forward to learning new things from this September's project!  Read more about the project here.
Happy Sewing All!
