Simple Summer

At last I have completed the summer collection.  This is the final piece;  a light weight jacket made from a crinkled blue and white cotton and heavily topstitched.  The pattern I used was “By Popular Demand”  from the Cutting Line Design range.   I had been concentrating on these patterns to create a relaxed mix ‘n’ Match Simple Summer collection that I posted about earlier.   I have sewn 3x shells ,  2x skirts and  a Relax Little Vest.

This was the most complex/time consuming piece because of the topstitching and changing of the thread…..so I set up my old machine with the topstitching  thread and swapped back and forth.  Relatively easy to sew and tried out my new ‘button sew-on foot’ which made sewing on the buttons (with the machine) a little easier.
