I've been meaning to post this for some time now. I'd like you to see the litttle red jaket I made this fall.
The fabric is a beautiful woolen deep red thing (even if it looks orange in some of the pictures, I apologize for the crappy photos).
I'm a tall girl with wide sholders so finding jacets that fit me perfectly is hard. This projetct took a good while to finish, but it was well worth it because I use it constantly. With a woolen cardigan under it works even if it's belo zero celsius.









Thank's for looking!

So lovely! Was it of your own creation? Or, from a pattern?

It's absolutely gorgeous!  The cut looks fabulous on you.  Great job! 

Off topic:  I have a red jacket I need to put new buttons on.  However, I haven't been able to find red buttons that match, and I was afraid black buttons might look too ladybug-ish.  But your jacket looks awesome, and is not at all like a ladybug.  I'll have to start looking at black buttons now.  Yay, button-hunting!

Actullay Yes and No. I looked at a jacket from the sixties, with a nice collar and with slightly assymetriclal buttons, so I used that and went on by my self.

About the buttons: Mayby it might be a bit on he ladybug-ish side, but then I like the ladybugs, at least in theory. Best of luck in the button hunting business, I'm sure it'll go (and look) great!

Looks excellent!  I have really broad shoulders too; I'm just a shorty.  You did a good job tailoring it to your body.

South to the cold? That would be Australia, right?
Actually i bought it at a thrift shop and it cost about 1,5 Euro. It has such a lovely wollen feel and the best colour, so I'm happy. The only problem bying fabrics at thriftstores are (if it looks fine and  isn't dirty) that it's small peices. I think this was three diffrent peices so it sometimes takes some planning. But it definetly was a great find!

I must try that some time, to use the fabric from a biiig pice of clothing and turn it into something new and beautiful. (I have used mostly small pieces of fabric, leftovers from other peoples projects, or curtains) Do you have any posts on Craftster or pics I could take a look at to see what you have done?
