|I like to make and wear Serendipity Jackets. These jackets have been the source of many happy surprises for me. It was by making them that I discovered free cut piecing, my artistic voice. I prewash silk from many sources so that the jackets will be washable. I piece the fabric to make 5 little quilt tops , (2 sleeves, 2 fronts and one back), layer the tops into quilts and quilt them. The pieces are sewn together with silk seam binding in the seams to make them reversible. |
In addition to being washable and reversible, the size can be adjusted by moving the button and rolling the sleeves. I use Thermore batting which makes the jackets very lightweight and "drapey", and a wonderful benefit - Thermore prevents wrinkles!
I am also a passionate knitter and often sell my Sweaters so I have included one in the slide show. I like to use many different fabrics when I piece and likewise in my knitting I use many kinds of yarns. I love all the surprises in the process!
