High Five for the Holidays

My High Five Jacket is almost complete. All that is needed is the right closure. I'll probably go to Gail K to see what is there. Or I might create Chinese ball button out of a solid black silk remnant. It doesn't need much. The fabric is the focus with this garment, I think.

This sheer and textured fabric was purchased on a trip to Toronto to visit DSIL several years ago. She too loves to sew garments. She took me to a small designer workshop where the bolt ends are sold in a small room just off their cutting room. There was a glass window into the cutting room that was fascinating. And we were able to walk through their show room where they have sample garments.

It will be fun to wear during the holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. May our fiber creations still fit after Thursday.
