is *certainly* lovely. Even if I am tired of the project as a whole. I am very glad that my "real" jacket is made from "real" materials - they are every bit as lovely to my hands as they are lovely to the eye. And I've found that I actually rather enjoy sewing silk charmeuse, although fine silk needles and pins will be *required* if I'm going to continue doing so. Listening to the machine punch holes in the fabric was a bit like listening to the fabric of the universe being punched, and any number of my pins refused to go through the silk. (I even changed to a fresh needle after the sound of that first seam. It helped. Not enough).
Hemming the lining tonight. Should be done, if the Lord wills, tomorrow.
