The jacket is more or less as it was before, now with half a lining (I screwed up part of it with overly large seam allowances) and the beginnings of a fancy collar (with tissue paper stuck underneath so you can see it) However, it stopped feeling like play-time and started to be a slog, so I set it aside for a little while.
And finally, gratuitous fabric post. Remember back in, maybe April* when I finished stash-bast mark one, and decided I was allowed a treat? Here it is! (and by gosh and by golly, as it ANOTHER blue batik? will wonders never cease?) scissors are hanging out for scale.
*I'd link, but google+ is still digesting my pictures. So think happy thoughts of regurgitation.
