I feel like I'm working at a snail's pace these days but I am making progress, particularly today.

First up the hat. I sewed the feathers on. Not exciting I know but necessary. :>

And the jacket. Cutting it out was an adventure as I had the remainder of my fabric in two pieces. It took some fiddling but I got it to fit on one so I have a nice big left over piece. 'Cause you never know when you will need some striped fabric. :>

I've been working on it a few hours at a time this week but really knuckled down today. It's all done except for the sleeve hem and hooks & eyes - yay!

Bridget will be home in just about 2 hours - I'm so excited! *happy butt wiggle*

Thanks! I'm really pleased with how comfy the jacket is too, fit wise. I must have done something right! The fact that it's 100% poly will limit where I can wear it of course but I love the way it looks. :P

Thanks, what a nice compliment! I'm so glad I ditched the redingote so I would have time/energy for accessories. They have been SO fun!

Where there's a will, there's a way! The jacket looks beautiful! I'm still totally in love with the hat.

Very true - I'm nothing if not stubborn. :P

Thanks and yay! It's great to have her home, if just for a little while.
