Finishing Work


I’ve finally managed to put the snaps on my cashmere cardigan. I bought them in New York when I attended MPB Day. MPB Day was fabulous, as usual. Even if I had not acquired the snaps, it would have been a fantastic day. If you every get the chance to attend, you definitely should. There’s a strange kinship among people who share a hobby that makes it extremely pleasant to hang out together. I even got to meet Mainley Dad, whose blog I have been stalking for ages.

Anyway, I covered snaps with the same silk satin that I used for the trim. and sewed them onto the placket. The jacket is now complete.

Here are some detail photos:

    It’s always good to finish a project – and even better when it looks as good as this!

    Okay now that you’ve swung back to making these types of clothes I’m flat out saying that I’m going to copy you. I love your flights of fancy garments and always wanted them…but where would I wear them to since I spend so much time at work. Now though you’re sewing things that with minor adjustments I could add to my wardrobe! I’m drooling over here!!!

    Claudine, I also had a blast meeting you! I can’t wait to see what you do with that wild black fabric from Paron’s.
