Another Minoru!

This is my second Minoru jacket.  The first one that I made in purple had no hood.  We are planning a trip to Ireland in September so I wanted one with a hood.  I have read that Ireland has little sunny weather and lots of cool weather plus rain.  Again I followed Tasia's tutorials so everything is straightforward.  The only thing I did differently on this one was that I added a layer of flannel underlining for a little added warmth.  The flannel was from my stash, as you can see.  I picked up the fabric from Fabric Depot over in Portland.

I'm going to try and catalogue my 2013 sewing projects here, so at the end of the year I can see what I've done.  Started out the year making sweatpants for the grandsons.  I used my Ottobre 4/2008, which I have used before, but had to retrace to size 128 for the larger pair and size 92 for the smaller pair.
