I just read this whole thread. I'm in total awe. I really want this jacket, but I don't know if I can make one happen.

Just a few questions; I didn't see if they were answered already...

1) could you estimate the yardage for the exterior & lining?
2) the pattern looks like there are 12 pieces for the long sleeve, but none of the finished ones look like they are made up of this many pieces. Is that correct?
3) what length zipper did you use for the sleeve?
4) was the seam allowance only 1/4"?
5) someone mentioned the pattern wasn't at 100% size. what percentage did you use to print out the pages?

I'm so tempted to do this...

thanks!

Hi cascioli, I'm tight for time so I can't answer everything; I'm on vacation right now.  In about a week I'll be back home and can answer all your questions (umm maybe) but for now, at least: I'm the only one I think who used the multi-piece sleeve, mine was cut from three different color fabrics to make the Union-Jack colors & pattern.  If you're not making a Union Jack jacket, you don't need to use all the little bitty pattern pieces.

Also, someone's pattern was printing small but that was a mistake on their side; the pattern is the right size.  And the seam allowance is about 1/2", but I think it might really be in the METRIC SYSTEM.

Good luck!

Hey there, to answer some of your question, I used about 1.5 meters (yes I work in metric) of fabric for both (maybe a little bit less). The zipper I used was a 50cm zipper. Seam allowances were 1.5cm. And for printing instructions you can look earlier in the topic (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28780.msg244952#msg244952) I already covered the subject.

Thank you Cathou!

Meters & yards are very close, so that's very helpful. ;o) So that's 1.5 for both the lining & outer fabric? I'm trying to find some nice fabric on sale. I found silk duponi for $8/yard online, but that might be too fancy for me in the long run.

I am able to tile large pages with my version of Acrobat, so outputting isn't a problem. I just wanted to make sure the PDF had all the pattern pieces at 100%!

what type of fabric would you all reccomend for this jacket?  ive been wanting to make it ever since i first found this thread (around a couple monthes ago) but im kinda scared to even attempt it.  also, if i took this to kinkos could they print it out on big paper or would it be better to have it on multiple 8x11 pages?

I made mine out of nylon flags and cotton lining.  I think basically any fabric that gathers niceishly would be good.  I'm still intrigued by the idea of denim.  You will have to be wise about your interfacing/self combination choice.

If you get it printed big at Kinko's, it will save you a lot of taping grief.  But it will be very expensive.  If you do it, make 1000% sure they are printing it at the right size.

I mean that depending on what fabric you use, you may need to use heavier or lighter interfacing in different parts of the jacket.  Like the front is supposed to be kind of stiff, so if you are using a very thin fabric you might need to use a heavier interfacing.
