The piping, button loops, sleeve openings and I need to wear it more! You know those things you make, put in you closet and sometimes don’t wear often. Then you pull it out and think, why? Why haven’t I worn this? It might not be stylish right now but I think it is classic. What do you think?
Okay, now onto the newest jacket, once again this garment is for my soon-to-be bride. The fabric is from Fabric Mart, a purchase sometime ago, with the purpose of a jacket. Just one of those things I have not gotten to but now
I made View A (khaki version) of Simplicity 4281 omitting the extra right pocket flap
I added a bit to the center back, after my last interview with Sarah Veblen and I asked her about this fitting issue with my daughter. Erin says this has helped with the tightness in her upper back and shoulders, more than anything better ease of movement.
I used a lining that was cream with a bit of stretch, as the twill had a bit of lycra in it.
The back has two darts on each side of center back and I made this dart one inch longer at the top. When Erin tried on the garment, it had too much fabric between the dart and the middle of the armsyce. This adjustment seemed to help with that fullness.
The jacket turned out cute and I I think she will wear this lots, especially with the stripes trend right now
My machine needs to go in for some maintenance, maybe the week of the wedding. This is the first time I have note been pleased with my buttonholes.
On another note, for this post Live Writer and it is so amazing and easy to use.
