since I still have a day off ( second day of christmas) I have time to blog again and time to knit and sew.
My simple knitted bodice is nearly finished! Both sleeves are knitted and I also have already picked up the stitches for the neckline. I need to sew in the ends and block it but the end is near and I might finish it this year!
After sewing so many very very easy projects I feel like sewing something *slightly* more complicated for ME. Most of my last projects have been gifts of some sort.
So here it comes:This is the patterncompany jacket no. 04-265 Jacke mit Kapuze aus Walk ( which translates to Jacket with a hood made out of felted/boiled wool)
I'm going to make this jacket out of a tealish/greyish felt but with the side panels out of a jacquard fabric.
I already have made this pattern once, so this time I wanted the jacket to be different.
The size I'm using will be a 38 again, since the jacket fits well but I have shortened the whole jacket about 1 cm ( to start with) and I got rid of the extra width of the whole lower back part, so I'll just have a slight ruffle in the front but none in the back, since I carry most of my weight at the back parts of my body *giggle*
Here's a link to the pattern pieces.

Unfortunately my felt was not wide enough so I have to cut the sleeves on the crosswise grain and have to shorten them. I'll be playing with remnants of the fabric if I do have enough.
The front (incl. the hood) will be lined completely, so I added s.a. to the front and the lower back part. All other pieces have the s.a. included.
Not a really complicated jacket but better than sewing totes :)
