Another couture challenge

While waiting for Couture Sewing: The Couture Skirt: more sewing secrets from a Chanel collector by Claire Shaeffer (it should arrived within few days!)

and watching the Great British Sewing Bee (love it!) …

I decided to give the pants a break and work on my new couture challenge – Jacket by Marfy 3350. It is a short semi-fitted jacket with 3/4 sleeves that form a square yoke. I will try to make it from a boucle or tweed. I am sure I can find something in my fabric stash.

You may order this pattern by writing to the Marfy office – it is not available on-line as pre-cutting pattern yet.

Just to make sure the pattern will fit I started with making a proof model.

One of the reason why it is so good to make a muslin – besides checking the fit – is to try the sewing order. Especially with the Marfy patterns where there is no instruction.

I still have to try it properly but so far it looks and fit ok. The only thing I am not so sure about is the length of the sleeves. The sleeves are 3/4 length – something I am not used to it.

    I really like the way the sleeves go across. Do you think you will use something with a stripe in it?

  2. You are off to a good start! I am sure your jacket will look fabulous! I don’t know if I could do a pattern without instructions. I guess I could get a clue from another jacket pattern’s instructions? I dunno?

    Beautiful pattern, Beata! Are the sleeves 3/4 or bracelet length? I think bracelet length would be perfect for you, think of the opportunity to make a matching Red PointTailor glass bracelet!
