Ankara Bomber Round 2: McCalls 7100

I mentioned in Fall/Winter To Sew List post that I had a few bomber jackets planned. First up was the matching Ankara set I sewed up for me and Miss Socialite. The lesson I learned from that attempt was do NOT use fusible interfacing (at least not without adjusting the sizing). Next up! This Ankara version for my sister.…

Currently the issue I have is finding time to do some selfish sewing because I’ve been busy creating and sewing items for my TipStitched‘s…
