While searching my fabric stash for a fabric I could use to make the jacket based on Marfy 3350 pattern I came across these two ones.
The blue/white fabric is loose woven wool bland.
This brownish one is linen bland. It is more stiff than the above one.
Looking at the qualities and properties of both fabrics I think I will go for the blue/white one. It is softer and looking at my wardrobe – I have much more combination possibilities.
But everything depends on the amount of fabric – I have to check if I have enough of this blue/white fabric to make it the way I want.
The brownish one will become either a dress or jacket/skirt combination.
Meanwhile the book Couture Sewing: The Couture Skirt: more sewing secrets from a Chanel collector by Claire Shaeffer has arrived. It went so fast!
Something is telling me that this will be my next project … soon.
Which one would you advice?
