Lately we have been disappointed with some of the events that we have attended whilst in Berlin. We were on a dry spell UNTIL Die Kartofeln Festival! Amongst the Grannies, kids and families elbows were out as we scavenged for worthy potatoes. A day full of potato harvesting, potato painting, potato stamping, potato eating, potato schnapps drinking.... and the list goes on. We even had a potato soup with none other then a long wurst sitting in it. Oh Germany.... you gotta love it.
The jacket is a bit of an oldie....but still a goodie. I made it a few years ago and have always really loved it. It has a bit of a classic feel to it and I love wearing it with my black bow skirt and my Kleidermarkt Hamburg white blouse. I can ALWAYS see the flaws in this jacket, e.g. the section added at the front is a cover up for my dodgy ironing. When fixing the interfacing I applied too much heat and consequently gave it a bit of a warped look. It is definitely good to look back at your old sewing projects to see how much you have learnt and improved!
