The Feast of the Hunters' Moon is going to be here soon (Oct. 4th) and I needed a bedjacket as part of my costume. So, I made one!
The pattern is available for free (here's the link) and is straight forward to follow. The fabric is handwoven. It's a bit of yardage that I wove with a network drafting design I made. The warp is 10/2 cotton and the weft is a dark blue bamboo. I had just enough yardage to make this short bedjacket. If I had more yardage, I would have extended the length another 4-6 inches.
The arm construction includes gussets. Look at the mess of threads unravelling on this gusset. It was awful!
I used one of Daryl Lancaster's finishing techniques from her monograph "Seams and Edge Finishes", and the edges covered in tricot binding not only look better, but feel more sturdy too!
