Fabric for the “Labor of Love Jacket” has arrived! The chosen fabric is a gray corduroy. As you can see, the wales are very narrow and the color is a medium gray (technically named “graphite). It should be pretty easy to work with since it’s cotton and it’s not too heavy.
The lining is a polyester china “silk” in royal blue. It’ll provide a bright contrast to the gray corduroy. I can’t wait to get started on this project, even though cutting is my least favorite part of the sewing process. Unfortunately, it may be a week or so before everything is cut out because I go back to school this week and will be busier during the day. I’m glad I have such a challenging and exciting project to come home to though.
