Today was a lovely spring day and perfect weather for wearing my new jacket. It is made of 100% wool using both sides of the fabric to get the contrast on the shawl. Fully lined with handmade buttonholes. I think my beloved machine found the thickness too much to cope with when I tried the buttonhole feature! The 3/4 length sleeves are a perfect excuse to wear my favourite leather gloves too! The free pattern was included in a copy of SEW magazine, given to me as a gift from my lovely neighbour. Very easy and quick to put together and I would definitely sew this again.
Our mission today was to seek out the Anish Kapoor sculptures in Kensington Gardens. We found the first – Sky Mirror – and the second – The C-Curve – but were disappointed to find out that the others had been removed for exhibiting in Paris.
