Just a quick one today on where you can find me on some websites.  First off, the Threads Magazine website in the Reader’s Closet section.  I submitted my green denim jacket (under QCD) that I made out of flea market fabric that still had the $.97/yard sticker on it.  The magic of this project was the buttonholes that I made separately and fused on the lapel and collar due to having too much bulk at the seam.  I wasn’t getting good ends on my buttonholes the normal way of sewing them.

Next up, my corduroy jacket from a Simplicity Project Runway pattern. Good story on that one too, got the fabric from a vintage fabric yard sale for $5.  Not only did I make the coat, but also a skirt and still have fabric left.  What a steal!  The lining was $2 a yard and I got the buttons for half price.  All totaled out at $20-$25 for the project.  Can’t buy it for that!
