It. Is. Finally. Finished.
It's not that it took a horribly long time to sew, although it's definitely not the quickest thing I've made. It's just that I've been making this jacket in my brain since seeing the Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was just so gorgeous.. the colors, the white trim. I completely fell in love and I had to have it.
And I couldn't find it anywhere. That definitely wasn't going to stop me though.
After a few months of searching for mint green wool fabric, I kept turning up empty. I'd finally find something that was close to what I was looking for, but it'd either be incredibly expensive or on some shady website that I couldn't trust.
Aside from just being happy that I'm finished with it and liking the finished result (although if I were to do it over again I think it'd turn out a little more polished), I walked away from it feeling super confident with bias tape and finding that making buttonholes is weirdly fun. I think it's mostly the enjoyment of ripping the fabric when you're done.
So the jacket is finally finished, and the Ohio weather is hotter than it has been yet this year. Not that I'm trying to rush the end of summer, but I am looking forward to getting to wear this jacket this Autumn.
