OK I don't have much to say about this pattern. You can see in the photos I am pretty chuffed about how this jacket has turned out. In case you haven't been following this - I made this jacket in a class with Felicity of For Frock's Sake. This class gave me the confidence I needed to tackle a project like this. The only differences I made to the pattern was to do real double welt pockets with flaps and a bound buttonhole. We also learnt how to do the shoulders properly and how to bag the lining. The pattern itself was well drafted and came together well.
ETA - Review is finally done - here if you wish to read it.
I so enjoyed making this jacket that when Felicity was talking about making a Chanel style jacket I said I would love to do a course in making one. So lo and behold in July a series of classes will be run and I had to run out and get a pattern and some fabric as I was so excited...
Yummy, yummy fabric from Gardams - the most expensive I have ever bought!
I am not sewing heaps at the moment (you can probably tell by the lack of posts) but I am making another version of McCalls 5138.
Tomorrow my best bud and I are heading to the big smoke to go the Stitches & Craft Show, spend the night at a hotel and then another day of shopping - bliss!
Watch out Brisbane - Sue & Caity are hitting the town - Woo Hoo!
