This pattern flew together, and again took me less than two hours. I ran into no unexpected problems. I did find the pattern runs a little large, so you may find you will have to go back, and take a larger seam allowance. You can make the jacket out of a light to medium wool, corduroy or medium to bottom weight denim. I made the jacket out of white piquot, and it falls very nicely. A very feminine detail not
shown in the picture, is a nice full pleat in the back.
Another very quick jacket, that can be worn to informal events or in a professional environment.
When done, consider accessorizing with fine, handcrafted jewelry from For, Women of Substance.
Photos of the sewn clothing are on my Pinterest site. Please click the above link and it will take you there.
I should note, the photos are of clothing that have been worn and washed. I once found myself unemployed and a $64.00 dry cleaning bill that had to some how be paid before I could get my suits out for an interview. I swore then that if the item could not survive the wash, gentle cycle or normal, I was not going to buy it or make it.
Plus, we surround our skin with enough chemicals, we don't need to voluntarily add more.
I have many interests, but have to admit sewing is not one of them. I sew only because I like to wear clothes that fit. Thus, my goal when I approach any sewing project is to get it done well enough that it is wearable.
Most of the time I reach that goal. I hope this blog will help open up new fashion vistas for you to explore.
