It was a short night as I wanted to finish as much as possible before I leave.
Short update about the Chanel-like jacket based on V8804. I managed to join all pattern pieces and have first fit.
I had to shorten it a little bit and the next to think about are sleeves.
I knew the sleeves are shorter than I used to so I had to check it first. I have already cut one sleeve and inserted 3 cm fabric stripe. Now I have to try it on. Looking at the Chanel jackets I tent to keep it in such a little more than 3/4 length so I could wear a (silk) blouse with manchet. My mother said that such 3/4 sleeve would be perfect with long leather gloves, hmmm… I have to think about it …🙂
Meanwhile I decided to join the Little French Jacket sew-along –
having so many fabrics it should not be difficult to finish at least one – as said Inna from Thewallinna and other creatures🙂
What’s more being at my mom place I decided to make another jacket – this time for her – using the V7975 pattern. That’s why the night was so short. Yesterday I cut off the pattern pieces in muslin fabric and made a toil.
Additionally I have made a muslin of a trousers for my mother based on her old one.
Today morning we had a fitting session🙂
Now I have to work out all alterations and have a second fit. I hope I will manage.
