1  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: The Mysterious Galliano Pirate Jacket - Help Me Decipher It or Sew-Along! on: January 30, 2012 05:36:03 PM
OK - so here is a progress shot.

OK that didn't work as I am so new to Craftster I need to have 10 posts before I can put in images apparently. It is in my gallery. I'll try and sort out he image thing too . . .

I love the fabrics and can't wait to wear it!

It fits and my ill-tutored attempts at resizing appear to have worked! It could have been better I guess, but I love it.

It is now finished (at least all the parts without the detachable sleeve I wanted to add). I will have to take a picture when I get home tonight.

Hi I will definitely post pics soon it is nearly done! Nd I m making the sleeve detachable so that will make it easier to finish! Technically since I have not done the sleeve yet! I was also watching the borrows the other night and thinking how the Ruhr sleeve could be made to have an attaching piece to make it long sleeved. It kind of all came together today.

I love it. And I have to agree with someone who said a few posts back that the pattern is so we'll marked, despite it's complexity it does all come together in a relatively logical fashion.

Pics soon . . .

Hi John, thanks for your offer of help. I have muddled through this a bit and am almost up to the lining. Struggling with right sleeve placement at the moment! I love it though.

Hi, I am not sure if you ever did this. The grosgrain ribbon required varies from 22 mm thick for most of it to 4 cm or 40 mm for some other lengths.

I have seen versions ms that do not seem to have any grosgrain.

If anyone is interested in a sew along, I am up for it - although I have already started.
 
I also am not a size 2, but I have modified the size of the pieces a little - I am not very curvy, but am more like a size 3 maybe. Anyway I did my adjustments based on bust size.

I'm using silk dupion for the main fabric in cobalt blue, black satin for the lining and burgundy grosgrain, so far so good!

Hi there- I am relatively new to craftster and not sure if this thread will be actively monitored anymore, but I was wondering if anyone else out there would care to do a new sew along for this jacket?

I confess to having already started mine - I am hoping to wear it to my brother's wedding!

Maybe I should find the sew along thread and post there . . .
