This was not at a time when I had any guidance, technical assistance (from books or teacher or anything) bar the pattern instructions ...and there was not a thought in my head that I should do practice welts. Never would have occurred to me until I read it in a blog. So obvious when you read it! I know they are not great but I am pleased with them and the zip.
This is a Kwik Sew pattern that I still have and will try to finish this jacket in the long summer holidays for my Mum when she walks.
The fabric colour is most like the top photo. It is completely water proof and I got it for less than a song at the fabric sale I go to about once a year.I've got more things I need to complete but some don't fit me any more..oops. The new treadmill may help me with that... as I am a single parent I can't go out and walk early so other than walking part way to uni (which is a good 20-25min fast walking each way)three days a week and general playing with my son, I don't get enough exercise - of course I could eat less (which I will too..soon). How old are your oldest UFO's?
