Simon is VERY happy that he finished his jacket! He designed this and sewed it all on his own. He took the base pattern for the arms, hood, front and back. The rest he came up with all on his own.
He wanted the green of his arms to arrive at the pockets, and he was exact in his details.
He wanted to have so many details on this jacket, that it was way beyond me. My first jacket I wanted to concentrate on the basics.
Look at the inside pocket that zips up. Now remember Simon has never sewed a pocket. He did an amazing job.
He even did double stitching on the coat hook
He says that his jacket are heavy when there is alot in his pockets and this will help support it when on a hanger. I don't know about you, but when I am learning a new skill, I don't see all these details the first time. He does. You can't see well from this picture, but he embroidered his name, just in case anyone wants to steal this jacket! .
All in all I am extremely proud of the work he did and I think his jacket is better than anything we could buy! Now time to finish my jacket so we can play in the snow.
