A looooong time in the making, I finally finished my Hikaru last night. I even wore it to work today (even though it was a little warm for it). ‘
Finally, my Hikaru is finished!!
So, with no further ado, here it is:
I’m SO happy with how it’s turned out. Particularly the awesome lining:
It had it’s challenges. The wool was thick and my machine struggled with parts of it.
Military inspired buttons down the front and lapels on the shoulders
Not to mention the TWENTY FOUR buttons!!
Buttons on the cuffs
The button holes were the biggest struggle…
The wool is surprisingly soft, not scratchy at all.
Embroidered “label” and a ribbon hanging hook
And did I mention the lining??! It’s also soooo soft and smooth!
