Homespun Jacket

I finished my jacket this afternoon. I've been working on the wool appliques all week -- buttonhole stitched them by hand, which was really easy! Put the jacket together today and stitched the binding down this afternoon and just took it out of the dryer (it probably needs a little pressing and I need to check for loose threads), but it's done! This pattern is called Homespun Jacket and is from Primitive Gatherings.

By the way, I'm really pleased with it and for someone who has no knowledge of clothing construction, it was really easy!

Tomorrow is Will's christening, so will be spending most of the day in Wisconsin.

Gratitudes:
I finished the jacket and I like how it turned out.
Working in the sewing room today.
Nice fall days.
