Student's Jacket

I thought I would get to work on my daughter’s jacket, but I was sidelined by a homecoming dress. However, my student is moving along. We have corrected her muslin and she’s cut her jacket. Today she started quilting the pieces. She’s confident enough to continue the quilting at home. Next week’s lesson will be sewing the jacket. Here are the fabrics and trim Kira chose and here’s Kira tying off the sewing threads between the layers. This is so exciting.


  1. I didn't realize that you undertook a student for the project! That is wonderful. She seems very confident! You are doing a great job.

  2. I would like to know what kind of trhead youare using for the lining in order that it doesn't show from the right side
    I am planning to us an invisible thread I don't konw if it is a good idea. I haven't tested it yet. What do you think?


  3. She is using 100% polyester thread; a pink shade by Gutermann to match the wool and a reddish-purple shade by Coats and Clark to match the lining.
