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.
PS. From my Pool so far the GBSB is winning
