Oh god I love this jacket sooooo much. I saw it ages ago on craftster and thought wow I want to make that but I knew I would have no idea how to. I still want to make it but  all I have every sewed before is a skirt and even that didn't go that well (not my fault, I ran out of fabric! So I just made it a bit less full but then it looked totally different to how I wanted it so its banished from my sight!) I really wish I could join you in this but I don't really think that this is a beginner's project  Sad Just out of interest does anyone know what size this is (UK if possible) so I know incase i do persuade myself to make this in the future. Damn one thing I hate about uni is a total lack of sewing machines. Oh well roll on Easter. Good Luck!!!! Smiley

Another lover of this jacket here! I'd join in if I had the time/patience/experience to try it but unfortunately I don't. I'll definitely be following along though.

A tip to anyone who wants multiple copies of the pattern: don't forget you can just get one printed then trace as many copies as you need of the pieces you want to play with on some tissue paper/freezer paper/thin interfacing.

Okay so those orange pattern pieces: All but three (four?) of them have roman numerals on them, and those correspond with lil' bits all around the jacket. Like pattern piece 9 has markings for IV, V, and VI, where d-rings attach, and those match some of the orange pieces. And the others I think are for elastic.

A tip to anyone who wants multiple copies of the pattern: don't forget you can just get one printed then trace as many copies as you need of the pieces you want to play with on some tissue paper/freezer paper/thin interfacing.

Excellent! That's what I'll do. Last night I went ahead and printed out the pattern on three pages to hang on the wall, and mark the hell out of it and such. Like which ones are sleeves and doubles and what's a facing piece, and I wish I had it with me now because that technical drawing you've got going is pretty sweet. In fact if I could get it to work I'd just print the whole thing out at home but it's not happening for me. So! Only one expensive copy, which means I get to spend more monies on fabric. Win.

Other than that I've done nothing else for this jacket for two days, so I feel like my progress is going super slow. I did go fabric shopping, though, and I wish I could find a link for this Alexander Henry cotton I think I'll use for the interior, but the closest thing is this: http://www.ahfabrics.com/product_details.php?p_id=487. Same colorway, just less busy, and with tattooed sumo wrestlers and geisha.

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?

Well I'm going to see if I can get it printed tomoro for cheap and I have pinstripe rip-stop I can make a tester out of. I've also found a model who it will fit perfectly Smiley

Reading the other thread they disscussed printing it out on A4 paper....does anyone have the pattern in pdf format done this way?
