There's no stopping me now!

Hahahaha!!!

Blah blah blah. Blah. Blah.

This entire blog post is to say...

I MADE A WELT POCKET ON MY KNIT JACKET!!!!!!!!!

I am making another Butterick 5926 jacket. I wear the green one to.death. And the patch pockets are fine...but I've been dreaming of this navy/white version with silver buttons since the very first time I attempted the pattern back in October 2013.


AND I'M MAKING WELTS!!!!!!!!

I was so nervous but I did it! Well...the hard part. I still have to sew the pocket in place but pfft! That's child's play compared the sewing the welt! :)




I hope to have this all finished by Saturday.

    1. Thank you!! You would be so proud. I had sewed the right front and back together before cutting the left back. And then it didn't match the left front.
      And I *gasp* recut it so that it would be perfect! :)

  12. That is so great! This is one of those details that would be a big distraction to me- I would spend the day admiring my own pocket any time I wore the jacket.
