I have finished with the LBD for the PR sewing contests. Sometimes it is good to have this deadline … this time however I had a very busy November month and I was very tired at the end.
As the winter is coming… slowly but definitely, I am staring on a new project – Jacket based on Butterick 5424 Misses’ Reversible Jacket.
I decided to go with a view A – loose-fitting jackets with contrast reverse side, shawl collar and dropped shoulders; stitched waistline tucks, front loop and button closure.
I have adjusted the pattern to my figure – as always I had to shorten the sleeves. I will not make it as reversible. I was checking the Pattern Review website to see some examples and check for issues. I found it very helpful!
I have in my fabric stash black fabric – wool with cashmere. It will be very suitable for this. I have bought the rest of the fabric and I have it in 2 pieces – and I have to watch out as the cut line of the fabric is not strait.
I have put the pattern on the fabric and I have notices that I have just enough – Maybe I will even need to shorten a little the pattern. It looks only like I still could move the front pattern a little down – unfortunately not.
For the upper collar I will use this very small piece of a fabric I have bought 1 year ago (it is already 1 year? Time flies!) in Linz (Austria). It has a silver grey colour ….
I hope I will still have enough to make caffs for the sleeves … it would be nice.
The patterns are pinned to the fabric and tomorrow I will cut it. Then lining – maybe I will use lining with warm underlining.
