Wow! That came out amazing. Love the stencil and colors - just in time for Fall...
lisaj75701453115 answered:
Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I'm just excited I got it done in time for fall - thankfully I live in a mild climate so that bought me some time...
faux nom asked:
So great! Your stencil placement really highlights the lines of the pattern, (Glad I'm not the only one who watches TV while I sew!)
lisaj75701453115 answered:
It almost validates TV doesn't it? And thanks so much for taking the time to comment - very encouraging.
amyrt asked:
Great job and it looks really stunning on you! Is the background black or brown?
lisaj75701453115 answered:
The background is actually navy blue. And thanks for the encouragement. And I see you are "amyinphilly" - I spent my high school years in Reading, not too far. Really miss those seasons!!
Nixxi asked:
What a great take on this jacket! I do like the way you have placed the stencils - so clever on the back of the jacket where the darts are. I agree with Anyinphilly it looks stunning.
