To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: August 04, 2009 07:19:23 PM »


Pattern: BWOF 02-2009-112

Pattern Description:This shaped jacket with contrasting print is as classy as a fitted jacket and as sporty as a trench coat. The sewing pattern comes in petite/half sizes because this style is particularly suitable for shorter women.

Pattern Sizing: Burda sizes 17-21.  Increased to a 23

Fabric Used: Canary Yellow Stretch Cotton Sateen from Downtown LA

Notions Used: Buttons!

Pattern Alterations: Increased to a 23. Eliminated the buttons and buttonholes for the neck area.  Did not add belt loops.

    * I really love the color.  I am afraid of it much like I am afraid of white but I love it...LOL  Smiley   Can't wait till it cools down some to wear it.

    * I had just enough of the main fabric to finish this jacket.  I had to use lining fabric underneath the flaps but it worked out well as it would have been pretty bulky otherwise.

    * Love all the details! But Holy Cow is there a lot of topstitching!  That is what kept me from getting this done quicker.  What made it worse is I am quite OCD about my topstitching so it is slow and tedious and will be ripped if it looks crappy.  Thank goodness for the adjustable blindhem foot.

Conclusion:Although I have quite a bit in the bad and ugly categories, I really do like this jacket.  I will not be sewing this again, but I would recommend it.   Now I just need to get a years supply of Scotch Guard!

This looks AWESOME on you.  And the topstitching is fab.
Also, the scotch guard might not be such a bad idea Wink!
