results!

and this is what it looks like now: it has a Pirates of the Caribbean feel to it: I like the billowing on the back, thanks to the 'sandwich-band' 


the sleeves have been lengthened with the cut-offs from the front and the front edges have been reinforced with the cuff cut-offs, which have been dyed seperately and I've added a bit of lace

I like the accidental pattern here

Hi Deanna, thank you! and yes shorter is better and more practical and suits me better; I have seen your latest dye results and very much liked what I saw, wanted to comment, provider issues, blablah, so I 'll try visiting again.....

So great to see how the jacket looks on you. As I mentioned on CB2, it is very stylish and looks so good on you.

Hi Mo'a thanks for visiting and your nice comment, I am rather pleased the way it has turned out and now 'fits' me; I have gone over to your blog as well and roamed around a little....

Really love the way this jacket is evolving - it has so much personality. Enjoyed reading your blog (seeing more pics than on CB2) and following how this piece has been dyed and changed to "fit" you - great work! Like the photo of your yellow lab too...I have a chocolate lab/chessie mix and enjoy every day with her.

Wow, what a transformation. It looks fabulous!

hello Ayn and Heather, thank you two too!
It has been great fun experimenting with this jacket, especially the 'wicking dye technique' Grace invented this term; it is almost done, I hope in time for a party this saturday....see what folks 'out there'think of it.

I love this first picture: you looking at you looking at us! Looking in - Looking out!
I like those marks too, look like some sort of writing :)
I am sure missing out on this class it seems like!
