What if you don’t like a circle skirt? You sill can use it to make a jacket to wear together with your little black dress.

Jacket?!  Coat?! Yes, and very simple as well. I came across my drowings from few years ago with some ideas (just skip my notes which belog other projects) …

and not so long ago I have seen this on Pinterest

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

So… don’t wait too long. There is only one panel available in my RPT Couture shop on Etsy

Gold & Black Panel for Your Dreamed Circle Skirt

Grab a chance to wear self-made circle skirt during the Xmas Dinner.

With this gold and black panel fabric it will be a piece of cake for you. I have just listed it in my RPT Couture shop on Etsy.

circel skirt, gold, black, sewcialist, couture, handmade, sewcialists,

You could ease pair it with a simple black top for retro look.
The panel is 180 cm wide and 180 cm long. You may make 1 circle skirt or 2 half-circle skirts. The choice is yours!

The fabric is viscose/polyester in gold with velvet like black pattern.
Don’t wait too long – there is only one piece available.

Making a circle skirt is easy. The only measurement you need to know is your waist circumference (c).

With this panel you already have outer circle marked – which you can always adjust.

To proceed further you have to calculate a radius (r) using the formula:

r = c / 2π

r = radius
c = circumference (circle circumference = the waist circumference)
π = 3,14 (constant number)

After calculating the radius, you have to measure it from the center of the circle to its edge.

The length of the skirt you then measure from the waist (the circle edge) to the outer edge.

You may as well follow the pattern making waist opening bigger and adjust it to your measurements by nice elastic band.

If you have no time for calculation you may use this simple pattern I have found out on What A Craft.

Dont forget to cut a waist band and keep in mind the seam allowances.

Good luck!

Progress on Dark Blue French Jacket

Having my business trip to Brussels cancelled I had a weekend for my French jacket.

First, let’s meet my new help … the Bernina walking foot.

During the week, after work, I have managed to cut off all lining pattern pieces from the silk Charmeuse. I still have piece left either for the next jacket or top.

After managing few household ‘issues’ the rest of the weekend was mostly preparation for and quilting of the pattern pieces.

Now having all quilted the next step is making of buttonholes – all 9 of them, by hand. I love it!

I will have some time to think about a trim…

Weekend with my French Jacket

It was high time to tackle my fabric stash and start working on my new French Jacket.

Recently during the fabric market I have bough wool fabric in my favourite colour – dark blue.

Together with Silk Charmeuse – silk I have bought via website the HelloSilk (you find more information here) will make perfect French Jacket – needed addition to my wardrobe.

First I have tried on my muslin to check what should be adjusted. It still fit well. I took the paper pattern pieces and iron them gently… even gently ironing make them difficult to use.

I decided to transfer them to heavy cotton muslin fabric.

When all was ready the real wok started. I really enjoy this process. It will be very slow sewing project.

At this moment the pattern pieces are traced, cut off and ready to be assembled.

I really can’t wait to wear this one and start working on the next one.

These are fabrics for the next French Jackets:

This one will be for jacket and skirt.

 

Meanwhile I am adding more and more patterns to my RPTCouture Etsy shop. I just want others to enjoy self-made garments .
