This is a rather unusual occurrence for me. I have another jacket to share just a week after the last one. For the first time in a long while, I've been able to spend almost all my studio time on sewing. I've gotten relatively caught up on my administrative duties and I think our web site is finally fixed and working as it should. It has felt so good to be able to just concentrate on art for a change.
I've gone for simple and understated in this one--a raw silk blend with couched perle cotton (Stef Francis, of course) and embroidered leaves salvaged from a fabric sample destined for the trash bin. I call it Leaf Line.
The details are subtle, but even the inside has not been ignored.
As I finish each jacket, I have started to create a scarf that picks up some element of the jacket. That's what I'm starting today - a scarf to use all the leftover embroidered leaves that I so painstakingly cut from those fabric samples.
