NewLook 6007: Finished! Plus a giveaway
I'm happy with how the elastic turned out at the waist and its surprised me how comfortable it is to wear and how much arm movement you have!
I used some wooden buttons I found in a bag from Judith (my hubbies Nan), they're a bit beat up but I like that about them.
I bagged the hem out using this method again, it's so easy and ends looking so neat!
I mainly made this to wear out to my Mum's in winter - she lives out of town on a bit of land so staying there means I go with her to walk the dogs through the paddocks and we sit around a campfire or bonfire at night time. So this is very warm and easy to chuck on over top of whatever I'm wearing, plus the wool fabric is slightly rain resistant.
Now for the giveaway! I originally bought the Minoru jacket pattern for a casual weekend jacket and to wear out to my Mum's but after a couple of muslin's decided I didn't like it on me, so I'd like to give it away. Please leave a comment and make sure I can contact you through your profile/blog. I'm happy to post internationally and I'll pick a winner randomly on Monday :)
