Q&A with Tanya Sewbiz

Tanya Sewbiz asked:
Its two tone because I ruined the first front piece cutting the Welt But it worked out better this way.I added pockets on the side arms and made the seams show on the outside of the front and back.made a fabric cross on the back with and an on-lay of the blue .plaid. I'm going to add studs or rhinestones to the back shoulder seam.I cut small hearts out of the plaid for the pocket flaps,
Tanya Sewbiz answered:
I wanted the cross on the back not to be that obvious.I may add rhinestones to it though
