|Border, setting, and sashing close up|
Easter means many things to me -- including a new, springtime outfit! Here is this year's version: a jacket and coordinating skirt. I used the jacket from the Park Bench "Central Park" pattern (which I've had for years but hadn't ever made).
The jacket has three layers, with plain muslin as the interlining. I didn't have enough of the Asian key design to line the sleeves so I used a very contrast-y stripe. The closeup photo shows the meander quilting that holds the layers together.
I had all the fabric for the jacket on hand, but had to buy 1-1/4 yards of solid green (linen/rayon/poly blend) for the skirt.
