My husband is an inveterate garage sale shopper. Now that spring is here he has multiple opportunities. When the kids were growing up they were his partners in crime, avidly make the rounds with him. My dd the bibliophile's favorite score was at the estate sale of a college professor. Lots of books on her list. This is what he brought me home Saturday.
He paid $10 for this when the other one I have cost me $30 at Costco. I have seen them for more money. I'll put this next to my cutting table. I envision more organization and cleaner counter tops.
That's my jacket on Zelda. It would be finished by now, except that I made a mistake and had to rip the shoulders and upper sleeves out. I cut this out last fall and didn't look carefully at the pattern which was still pinned to the pieces, when I pulled it out. I had cut 1" sas on the shoulders. I sewed 3/8". I really didn't realize this until I tried to attach the collar. My bad. I even ignored the clips that I always make at the seam allowances because I do like to use different width seam allowances. I should be able to finish this today or tomorrow.
Here's another picture.
All I have left are sewing on the combined facing hem unit and topstitching for the hems.
