This jacket has been waiting for buttonholes for several weeks.
I made them today and sewed on the buttons. I even made a start on the matching skirt.
Mojo restored by fabric buying.
Anyone else experienced this?
This is my haul from Lucy and Gay’s 6 monthly home seamstress service.
What are they, apart from delightful? Lovely cotton silk blends, apart from the blue pixelated print (polyester) and the navy stripe (stretch cotton).
But that’s not all.
I also have a hot pink silk twill, floral silk chiffon, polyester starburst pleat in silver, teal cotton, gray stretch wool and a yellow cotton silk stripe.
And there’s more.
A taupe stretch cotton, poly cotton precrinkled red polka dot and taupe pleather.
A significant lack of restraint was shown today.

That’s one impressive haul – lovely colours and prints and plains and solids – bit of everything! Your jacket is divine.
What is with the missing mojo these days? Glad yours came back. Have fun!
Beautiful jacket, and ALL of the fabrics are amazing.
Nothing motivates me like more fabric- even other peoples fabric! Gorgeous pieces!
Great little jacket! Wow, I love the blue piece on the top left hand corner of the first picture. Looking forward to your creations.
Awesome jacket! Mojo restored by fabric buying? Absolutely!
I love the jacket, and your fabric haul is really great!
Jacket looks really great. I love your fabric purchases.
First, the jacket is pretty. Love the print. Second, fabric is always a motivator and you bought some goodies!
Feeling the need to go shopping after seeing your great haul! The jacket looks fab!
LOVE that blue pixelated print, poly or no, it would have come home with me too! I love the lemony stripes and that weird leafy starburst too, a very nice selection, well worthy of a mojo jump start
If you ever get tired of your wardrobe, let me know, eh? Love the jacket…b+w always looks sharp! Great fabrics, especially the red+white polka dot.
You do know that most of my wardrobe is neatly folded in 2 and 3 metre lengths..
Oh lovely lovely new purchases. How wonderful to have your mojo back and, therefore buttons on and project finished. Yay.
Great jacket. Aren’t finishing off jobs a pain sometimes?
Please send me your email or address. I have a stack of patterns with your name on them!!!
