French Jacket progress

Having one day off last week makes such a difference – daylight is helping a lot.

In the end the underlining – which was ready already few weeks ago – was attached to the fashion fabric.

This weekend I have cut the lining and all pattern pieces are now quilted.

What’s more the sleeves parts and the front and back pieces are basted together.

I have attached the walking foot to the sewing machine – I will try to use it so I will match the plaids correctly.

It took long to pick up the work on this jacket but once I started it went quite fast.

By the way… I am using the viscose lining. As I did not have enough in one colour I decided to use different colour for the sleeves. Lesson learned – make sure you have enough lining in place.

In between I will have to think and look for a trim. I will try to make a trim from the fashion fabric first.

Enough to do coming days.

    I love that fabric, what’s wrong with it? Its great to have a flash of color (I refuse to say pop) once and awhile. I love the warm red tones. Your work looks impeccable! i have had the same problem with lying my self. I buy bemberg by the bolt and sometimes its hard to tell how much is left.

    • There is nothing wrong with the fabric – it is that it is not a colour I usually wear. However I love it more and more. It is not so bright read but darker red tone. And I have just found in my fabric stash fantastic fabric which sutis perfectly to this jacket – it will be a dress and a skirt prbably.
      I have jsut ordered a few meters of silk charmeuse from China for next jackets. It is strange that when I go to a fabric shop and ask about silk charmeuse they look at me with big eyes … maybe they use different name for it.

  4. Great progress! I love your fabric.

  5. This is going to be lovely!
