Donatella at Inspiration & Realisation shows how she recreated the look of a designer quilted sweatshirt, but out of inexpensive materials. LOVE!! She used a standard sweatshirt like the ones you can find at most discount stores, using her machine to stitch a quilted damask design and installing a contrast zip at one side. She says the one she made will be worn all season long. I might have to make one for myself, so I can wear it all season long, too. Go to Inspiration & Realisation to see her tutorial.
