Silk for jacket
I have completed the pin fitting of the By Hand London Victoria Blazer. I cut out the pink and black raw silk fabric. Boy does it ravel! It is somewhat loosely woven, thus the raveling and you can see some sections of how loose it is.
I serge finished all seams and I think I will also apply a light weight black fusible to the body of this jacket to provide a little more support.
I have a lot of sewing plans in place in my mind for my upcoming holiday and vacay time. I don't return to work until 2016! That has a nice ring to it!!!! :-)
