I'm sewing a second blouson jacket. Daughter liked the first, and was keen to have one with some kind of quilting for warmth. Natch I'm making it hard for myself by actually quilting the lining pieces on some wadding I already had instead of either buying a ready quilted lining, fleece or iron on wadding.
That got completed last night, so onwards and upwards! I'm using a figured silk dyed to an aubergine colour for the outer. The fabric has a random pattern of shapes in satin weave on a ground of plain weave. It's a nice firm fabric so I don't anticipate problems (you've heard that before right?).
