Wearable updates

Greetings All,
Here are two more of my creations.  My sister/friend Pat Jackson had these fabrics for several years and asked me to make her some jacket/coats and we both were pleased with the results.

Very Berry Jacket

Greetings All,
Here is my latest creation and I just wanted to share it with you.  I started it last year this time and put it to the side, this is my "Very Berry" jacket.  It's stripped pieced of African Wax prints, Kona cotton, denim, and other wonderful cotton prints that I have collected over the years.  It has dolmen sleeves, patch pockets and a stand-up collar.
