Another project done! This one in only about a week, too.
We bought some wool fabric some friends of ours were selling and there was enough of a brown herringbone to make an overtunic for the Hubs so he would have something warm to wear for Winter Revel, a local event held in an unheated (except for two fireplaces) lodge.
I like the way this turned out – the embroidery is bright and bold against the brown linen I used for the trim and the solid trim contrasts nicely with the herringbone of the wool. The fabric was just wide enough that I didn’t have to hem the sleeves, just used the selvedge as the finishing.
