Just imagine this gold & black fabric with black velvet lining and sleaves. It would be very interesting – and for sure unique.

Coat – the next sewing project on the list

Some time ago I have bought a black cashmere/wool fabric for a coat. I have a dream coat on my mind with:

  • high waist
  • pleat at the back
  • collar

souds not so complicated. Meanwhile – 3-4 muslins further – I am still trying to find the best fit.

I have made muslin of a coats from Vogue V8626 and Marfy 3177. Eventhough they had features from the above list – I was not impressed. Continue reading “Coat – the next sewing project on the list”

Coat Marfy 3177

I have finished the muslin for the coat based on Marfy 3177 pattern, which I have bought about moth ago and I pu it on … and I heard the stitches bursting at the back.

Hmmm…. it was definitely something wrong going on.

I started to check the size and measurements – it should be ok, but still… it is something not good with this pattern. Continue reading “Coat Marfy 3177”

Ever admired the fabulous feminine Marfy patterns but never had chance to make something from its pattern?

Leslie from A Challenging Sew is planning in January a Marfy Free Pattern Sew Along using the free patterns Marfy has made available.  

A Marfy Free Pattern Sew Along with Leslie from A Challenging SewSeeing this announcement reminded me about my unfinished Marfy summer dress as well as Marfy coat pattern 3177 I have purchased recently. I have to wait for the summer few months so I decided to pick up the coat project first. During the fabric market I have bought the black cashmere for it and lining. As the weather forecasts are not getting better it is hight time to make a coat.

Wiktoria’s coat – looking for inspirations

It was not so productive day today… firstly I had too short night and too long day – so I am simple tired – I don’t want to make any mistake while cutting the fabric.
Secondly I have discovered a blog of my niece Wiktoria, where she share her ideas of a jacket/coat she would like to make. She is inspired by Japanese culture and fashion.

She has a boiled wool – in black colour as a main fabric and a dark red cotton for lining.

Having this in mind I have checked my pattern stash and I have sent her few patterns ideas she could use as a basis for her warm coat/jacket:

  • V1263 Misses’ Jacket – hmmm I still have a piece of dark blue boiled wool maybe I will make this jacket out of it… good fabric stash busting idea Glimlach

Last time about the winter jacket …

As I already wrote I finished my winter jacket – before my sewing machine went out-of-order.

I am glad with the final result. I was a little afraid that the size 8 will be too small but it came out perfect. I still can wear jacket under it. I did not place shoulders pads – the underlined lining is enough. It is warm and easy to wear.

The inner pockets are handy – I can put there keys, mobile phone, etc..

I have to first finish the skirt and the jersey top and then I can go on with my following project – coat based on the Vogue pattern 8626 – model C.


vpll 1912 project – follow up

I see I am far behind all participants in this project. I still cannot decide which garment should I make.

I have just checked the website for the patterns and I have found out few more interesting.

Now my choice is even more difficult.
