Fabulous. Useful to hear about your experience with the rib knit as well.

Thanks, everyone! Sorry I don't have a photo of me modeling it, but perhaps one of these days I'll be able to train my husband to take a good fashion shot :)

That is a work of art - bet you get lots of comments on it! Love your covered buttons too.

Lovely piece of art. I have watched this video twice. Some parts more. I finally am ready to stencil a tee but find I am dragging my feet. I am afraid to lay out the stencil. Any tips as your jacket is sew beautiful???

sewknitgrandma - if you look at my other projects you'll see that I started with really basic stuff. I used an old sheet for my first project, then graduated to recycling thrift store t-shirts. I ended up investing in an air-brush setup and have really enjoyed learning to do the stenciling. Once I felt reasonably competent, I bought the gorgeous fabric from Alabama Chanin, and started creating my own versions of commercial patterns. So the best tip I can give you is to start simple, and don't be afraid to experiment. Have fun!
