Spring on the inside

It's been a pretty long and grim winter around here...well, probably not by the standards of any truly cold and grim place, but for a soft-bellied Aucklander, it's been freezing. Finally, though, a walk around the streets has yielded glimpses of stuff like this:


...and this....


...which led me to think that this:


...would be a nice lining for this jacket, BWOF 2008-08-115, made in black wool:


...which I am looking forward to making at the Palmer Pletsch tailoring workshop I'm attending at the end of the month.

So there you go. A woolly jacket with a little bit of spring on the inside. Just the thing to bring a bit of fabricy good cheer to a cold day.


  1. That jacket will be stunning!! Wow

    Hints of spring are so uplifting

  2. What extremely beautiful photos! That jacket looks challenging- just the thing for an expert workshop!

  3. It's going to look great! I thought the same thing about the blossom when I saw a whole row of it top of valley road .. welcome spring!

  4. That looks like a great project, and the finished jacket will be gorgeous. I really really really love fun linings - every time you put it on it will make you smile.
