You know how I always say fabric has no expiration date? Well, thanks, to Kashi in particular .... and here's proof... FIVE YEARS LATER. The beige for the jacket lining was some leftover from lining my cradle bag, years ago. My zipper was purchased in a Botani zipper craze (resulting the jacket I posted about some time ago, if you follow that link)... And that pink fabric - I know it was a remnant once, which tends to be a rare choice for me.... but from where???? I remember it rolled, and such a gentle shade, with a warm fuzzy glow about it...
So... I just made a jacket for myself that is MEANT to be strewn about. It requires no particular care, and looks fine rumpled and simply thrown on. Comfortable as any jacket could be, it has five main features:
- A back slit
- An "absent" collar
- A flat bow
- a collapsible/removable hood
- Elbow crescent sleeve dart
May it stay with me forever. Or... just long enough for me to tire of it.
