I did it !!!

I’ve completed my SWAP and I am absolutely thrilled about it.

So here are the last 2 pieces, the Minoru Jacket and BWOF 02-2009-108 Bateau Neck Top which I have made before here

These are some photos of the Minoru Jacket that were taken yesterday, showing the hood, lining etc.

Zippered up and ready for action

Hood lining

Lining and I used sun silky for the lining sleeves

For this version of BWOF 02-2009-108 I compared the shoulder and arm holes with my Kwik.Sew 3740 pattern that I really love the fit of and adjusted this pattern to reflect those.

The fabric is a brown/green/cream abstract print from Fabulous Fabrics (sorry girls I thought it was from Knitwit) that I purchased when we went to Perth last September.

Now for the photos, 7 minimum and 12 maximum which we have to lodge by 8 May.  Why is the weather forecast for Sydney looking like it could be wet all week and I’ve got 2 short sleeve tops, 1 sleeveless dress and shorts to photograph Skype Emoticons

  1. Woa, your new clothes are just lovely. The jacket is so professional looking!Oh, Fabulous Fabrics is my favourite store 🙂 I'm glad you found something there and I hope you enjoyed the visit!


  2. This jacket and top are so nice! The lining really enlivens the jacket. It looks great on you. Your top is great, too. The print is so sophisticated.Congratulations on finishing the SWAP on time. I look forward to seeing your photos, and hope the weather cooperates!


  3. Great job to complete this challenge! Love the jacket and the top. I have a fabric which is very similar (I thought it was the same one) as your boat-neck top, which I plan to make up soon.


  4. Fantastic jacket, it's a beautiful colour and I love the lining. The Minoru is a great jacket, I've been wearing mine almost every day now. And your top is terrific! Great fit and lovely print.
