Nice to hear about another enthusiast trying out a bit of DIY tailoring.
I didn’t canvas the lapels on the safari jacket, I will try that on the next one I make though. I haven’t used an iron yet. When it’s all put together I will press it with a really heavy iron though. It’s a bit harder to get good results with a regular iron. I’ve machine stitched all the long seams yes, and hand stitched pockets, lapels et c. Hand made buttonholes of course.

I’ve probably posted some variation of this outfit before, but it’s something I’ve worn quite a lot this summer.

To a seaside town, that they forgot to bomb.
Oh, there we are.
I got caught up in so much other stuff that I almost quit working on this jacket. I started doing some stuff on it again yesterday. Still some hemming and other small details to get done, but I’ve overcome all the major parts.
Some of the stuff I posted my first year on tumblr
Since there are a bunch of new followers, I thought I’d do a short recap of the less horrible posts from my first year on tumblr.
