Why on earth would you buy 7 yards??? That's like 6.4 meters! Shocked Mine was done with 1.75m = 1.9 yards and the sleeves are a bit too long (my store bought jackets-coats have too shorts sleeves!) The pattern I taped together was about 1.63m And I told my seamstress to leave all those extra cm (175-163=12 cm that makes 6 additional cm for both sleeves) for the sleeve length. I don't know what she did, but they are loooong enough! I would make sure the fabric is wide and long enough to place one pattern above the other (see pic). With my woolen fabric it didn't matter which way she turned it to cut the pattern out.

Sorry but I have no tips for taping together the pattern. It took me 3 days Undecided and it came out a little asymmetrical Cheesy Just look at the part with Chinese symbols and look how the paper has to overlap to match the text together.

I'm a EU size 38/US size 8? and I think it fits perfectly. It looked too baggy on my mother who is EU size 36/US size 6? Mom thought I should try shoulder pads but I think my wide shoulders are all the padding I need Tongue

Blyss, if you need help with the computer, PM me!

Cutout, it's not 15 pages. It's 28 pages for the back and 28 pages for the front!

I did not make this!!! My seamstress did. I didn't want to ruin the beautiful woolen fabric.

And upside down.. The sleeve length is perfect this way!

Very cool. I especially love it from the back.

Wow. Well, when I printed it out & laid the pieces on the floor together it looked soooo long plus I don't sew from patterns often so eyeballing for yardage is not my forte. Thanks for saving me from buying 321847 yards!

that's 56 pages in total!! How is that only 1.9 yards?! Holy moly.  I reckon I'll just desperately guess it, and if I don't piece the pattern together right, maybe it'll make a cool new design. Errr.

Crazy pinky, I was so looking forward to seeing your jacket - but I can't see the pics!!
I do not know the reason, but the links don't work for me and it seems I cannot reach your server.
Any other way to have a look at your pics?

Wow, all your jackets look fantastic! Mum & I are now going to have to draw straws to see who gets to use our shared sewing machine first (well, after we've worked out how to get the pattern printed, that is!). A question about fabric though- everyone seems to have used really different types, and they all look great in the pics, but how are they to wear? Would a stiffer fabric bunch up in the under-sleeve bits? (What would you call that, anyway?) Just wondering what others have discovered...  Smiley

I taped together the pages and cut the pattern the other day and bought 2 yards of fabric which was just enough! I think it was 2 yards (length) x 50+ inches (width). When you actually tape the pages together they overlap a lot so it's not as big as it seems. Whew!

Just finished pinning it & cutting it out so I'll probably sew it today.

I love how the pattern only consists of two parts, but the jacket looks great! The website says the material should be some kind of wool... is it really necessary? I have a very nice fabric that I'd like to use for this jacket, but it is slightly sturdy (not soft jersey or knit) and stretches very little. Should I just go on with it?
