This jacket is a wearable muslin of my latest pattern-making adventure. Oh, how optimistic I was on the 1st of May, as I began this new jacket! I plunged into the creation of a new franken-pattern that would magically meet every need of my wardrobe. This perfect jacket pattern would be easy to sew, easily dressed-up or dressed-down and fit me like a glove. Oh yes, I was drinking the Home-Seamstress-Kool-Aid, all right. When I had completed the pattern-work, it seemed awfully silly to sew a muslin. I had measured and checked everything right? I decided to cut and sew.
Here is the happy ending:
|Bodice has a yoke and princess seams|
|The collar is a trench-coat type of collar with a collar stand.|
|Only this cat knows where the other two buttons are.|
There were tears, curses and time-outs along the way, but that is the subject of another post. Til then, I wish you
