Simplicity 7256… Hand sewn and in fleece!

So – crazy me decided to push the boundaries and try to make something out of a fleece fabric I got when vintage fabric shopping pig-in-a-poke style. (You can read about that in my blog…)

I normally don’t like fleece, so I decided to just go crazy and improvise. I figured it would be good for something warm and cosy for autumn, and then I decided to try and make a jacket!

I used Simplicity 7256 pattern for the jacket, and then I hand sew the whole thing together using a thin knitting yarn!

And here’s the result!

…and a detail pic of the crochet buttoning and the three different buttons I used!

There are some more pictures and other fun things over at my blog - stop by if you like!
