Anyone who has the SFD Shirt Kit will hopefully recognize this jacket from the front cover.
I'm really delighted with the result although I have used a medium to heavy denim [described as Elephant Colour by my friend, which I though was appropriate for a Safari] that makes it quite heavy and certainly wouldn't be the best to wear in a hot climate.
However, it's perfect for the UK especially as we're heading swiftly towards Winter.
I love the design elements, the pleated pockets, the edge stitching and the fact I found buttons to exactly match a buckle I had in my stash.
This jacket is fully lined in a light grey polyester fabric I had already and the denim was purchased during my recent visit to The Fabric Godmother in Hove when they had an open day.
The lighting in my sewing room isn't the best for taking photos and these were taken late at night with my little tablet so not the best but I hope you get the idea.
What I will say here is that I wish I'd been three years ago when I first started sewing. If anyone in the UK is new to SFD, PLEASE go on one of Judith's Retreats, you will learn loads and it'll make the system so simple from the beginning.
