Hurrah!  My completed jacket:

     

     

I looove it.  My friend who took the photos has been watching me work on it for months.  She said, "Now that you're finally finished, we have to go out so you can show it off!"  Cheesy

Yay!  It looks fantastic!  Ladies, we've done some good work here.  It's been a real pleasure.  I'm going to go start a show-off thread on Completed Projects, OK?  Then we'll be famous.

hi, i'm new.  (actually, i stumbled upon here courtesy of individualfrog's post on the lj sew_hip community)  upon reading this thread i'm enamoured with this jacket....i'm a tad hesitant to embark on the journey of making it though, as i'm not certain it's going to fit....

is it rude to ask tigralon, cathou, & individualfrog's model what their measurements are?  the jacket seems like it'd be a difficult creature to get an accurate measure of...but if i knew the measurements of humans that it fit, i'd have a better idea of whether or not it'd be a waste of my time to make this.

wow I am so impressed with the three of you! I have been following along for awhile and even chimed in an idea or two. All three of you have done such a great job seeing this through to completion! Like a few others have said I am proud of you as well!
Each jacket has it's own personality and individuality!
Fabulous!!

Actually, educo, only the sleeve is cut that way.  So this is the second time you've tried to lecture to those of us who actually know what we're talking about, having actually worked on this jacket.  Trust us, OK?


Last time I checked, this was a forum, and because of this reason I am free to post suggestions, NOT lectures, as you are quickly assuming.  I had sad  nothing against the construction of your version of the jacket , yet you still manage to take offense to what I was simply saying...I never took offense to your quick assumption (again) that only the individuals partcipating in the sew along know what they're talking about and the not the many people who are watching the progress, me included.  So if I may correct you, I HAVE draping and patternmaking knowledge, so I DO understand the process that goes into making a complicated garment as this...and because of this knowledge, I would take the extra time to plan out each color on each seam, so that when it's fully constructed, it would fold out  flat to a Union Jack flag... wow, can't we all just get along???

educo, what IndividualFrog was saying is that as the pattern pieces were drawn by Galliano (and posted on Showstudio), if you were to cut different pieces from different solid colours, you would get a jacket of large solid colour-blocks, but not the "Union Jack" pattern that was on the original jackets (and IndividualFrog's).  When we all started this project, we also thought it was just solid fabrics cut to form the design - check out the early pages of this thread and you'll see our posts about this issue.  It wasn't until later that we concluded he had used fabric printed with a Union Jack pattern (and on the bias).

(It would theoretically be possible to sew this design into the jacket with solid fabrics, but only by dissecting each pattern piece into smaller pieces, with some originally large pieces getting cut up into 6 or more little slivers.  In the same way, you could theoretically make a striped skirt by sewing together hundreds of long narrow strips of black fabric and white fabric, but it would be simpler to just buy fabric with the black & white stripes woven in.  This is what Galliano did - he chose to use fabric pre-woven with the pattern, and drew his pattern pieces accordingly.)

If you look carefully at the pdf and the Showstudio photos, you'll see what we mean.  You're correct that a few pieces are marked with a colour (in french), but those are the pieces to the sleeve, which is the only part of the jacket sewn with solid-colour fabrics.  I'm sure that IndividualFrog wasn't trying to offend you, just to clarify this detail.
