I looked in my stash and couldn't find any trim that would match the fabric well enough so dashed to my local market to see what I could find. The only colour was white, which I thought was too harsh against the autumn colours of the jacket so decided to dye it in some tea.
The picture above is just my test sample, but I was pleased enough with it to pop all of the trim in the tea for an hour or so. I rinsed the trim out in some hot water a couple of times and then hung it on the line to dry.
Meanwhile I got on with interfacing each jacket piece. I used some interfacing similar to the perfect fuse lite to give enough support to the jacket to stop it getting pushed out of shape.
I found some nice beige lining which I cut out to line the jacket, for the back piece I decided to omit the back seam and then stitched the first row of quilting stitches down the back seam.
Using my guide that came with the Bernina walking foot, I worked from the centre out stitching 1" apart.
Here you can take a preview of what the jacket back will look like after the quilting.
While I was out this morning I found some trim that goes with my Linton Tweed perfectly, so that was a real result.
I hope you are getting on with some of your own projects.
Catch you later..........................
