41  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: The Mysterious Galliano Pirate Jacket - Help Me Decipher It or Sew-Along! on: January 24, 2010 08:37:57 PM
alright guys- i finished my muslin rough draft!

i didnt bother to do the grosgrain appliques on this one, just wanted to make sure i knew where everything went. surprisingly, the pattern pieces are so well marked i found this WAY easier then any commercial pattern i've ever used! i sewed the seams on the outside just so i could see my markings and placements. it actually looks cool highlighting the unique piecing of this jacket.

im not sure i want to do that weird little gathered thing in the middle of the back on the top. its strange. and i like the deep v on the back without it, also i didnt put the flap with the eyelets on the back on the practive version either though i will on the final.

i kept noticing it saying something about "corset back" which confused me at first because as far as i can tell there is no corset-ry in here...so i think maybe thats just a turn of phrase?

one question, whats the deal with that button stand? where does that go? thats my only missing piece!

neat! im working on cutting everything out of my test fabric and seeing where that goes. im using an old bed sheet instead of muslin. works fine. so far its been helpful to transfer as many of the markings that are on the pattern pieces ONTO the muslin with pen as possible. lookin a lot easier then we thought so far! im feeling hopeful.

and tho i want the union jack part of me wants to do a sort of irridescent ice blue... ill post fabric picks after i go shopping!

chelsea, your lining fabric looks sweet, whatcha got going for the shell?

im gonna try to keep technical drawings and details of the whole process as a guide for others as we go (and because things arent very clear otherwise, to me anyway!)

alright im gonna keep adding details and editing these "maps" of the pattern .pdf as we go. for now, the basics that i know:

red numbers = the main numbered pattern pieces (as far as i can find)
yellow = the pieces you will need if you make the long sleeve out of individual pieces
blue = discard able (doubles of other pieces)
orange pieces = elastic (or grosgrain?) elastic i think.

let me know if we sort anything else out, i will update the 'maps'

tally ho!

ok so i downloaded the file and just brought it to kinko's to get it printed on their large format printer. its 3 pages and cost about 25.00 to have printed. (or apparently 15.00 at staples)

chelsea anne i know you wanted to have a  few copies printed and tho i think that would be majorly helpful its kinda pricey so i think im just gonna stick with the one and refer to the .pdf for reference. next i need to hit the fabric store...or order up some flags....lol. i think ive got my good friend and fellow craftster numb_carnelian (we met on here!) to do this along with us too..which would be awesome to have someone in real life to consult because sometimes i just cant see things on computers, ya know?

next step: look it over and see what were workin with here...hehe

SOOOO looks like im officially in! i have a cam and can post pics the whole way. Smiley im SUPER excited. i laid awake all last night trying to run over the tech details in my mind (im kinda obsessive like that but once the wheels start turning its hard to get them to stop!)

and you can just call me 'alli' Smiley

It's great!

As far as the sash goes, I would probably gather it like BJ's and sew it to the side seams so the back is totally loose. It will look more natural when it's tied that way.

i have this dress in the mint and pastel pink version- shes got it right, the sash is kinda gathered and sewn into the side seams then the back just ties like a bow over the zipper. yours is beautiful! looks great on you!

oh man....you tempt me...im gonna give this some considerable thought...it looks WAY outta my league but looking at how it turns out, chances are you couldn't tell if it was slightly messy...im gonna take a look at some fabrics. how do you plan on printing out the pattern? ill try to do it with you!
