With my finished blue yardage, I was thinking that I might make a jacket.
When I took it out to the studio to drape it on the dress form, try it this way and that, I wasn’t sure. It decided to be a top rather than a jacket.
Back, with braids…

I am so happy with it – it really feels like “me”!! It was the first time I have made long sleeves and I like how that worked out too. It will be a warm top with the wool, silk, silk fabric strips and the handspun wool in it – but also not too heavy as the warp is mainly cottons.
