You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey...
My mother's day present arrived yesterday and I've been playing with it ever since.
It was a bit daunting reading the manual and thinking, this couldn't be any easier if it were written in Japanese : p
I did a trial of the jacket with some spare fleece and cut out the 110cm size templates first.
I tested it by placing the pieces directly on Little Miss and decided that the sleeves were way too big and long. So then, I placed the 100cm template on top and snipped to size.
This is how it has turned out so far.
So far as good. I tried it on her this morning and it fitted quite well.
I'm not sure if I want to finish off making the collar, buttonholes and pockets or jump right into the real jacket.
I'm so in love with how it overlocks the edges while cutting it neatly for me.
