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... 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!


  1. Can't wait to see this! And that fabric is just lovely :)x

  2. The fabric is great. I'm looking forward to seeing the final outcome!

  3. Great fabric and selvedge. Perhaps a muslin first, as you haven't used these patterns?
