I adore this jacket. I want to make one, but I don't really want to re size and then try to tailor a coat, for myself. Maybe once I make a plaster mold of my (extremely hourglass, impossible to fit!) figure I would tackle it cuz it's cool as hell! I just don't think I have the tools or I would so be with you!

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!

I really REALLY don't have the skill to attempt something like this.. but I think I'm going to try it anyway, y'all are inspiring, my boyfriend the tech-freak just bought a large-format printer for a ridiculously low price, and I've got all this fabric that I got while Joann had all red-tag fabrics an extra 50% off, so why not, right?

alright guys- i finished my muslin rough draft!

i didnt bother to do the grosgrain appliques on this one, just wanted to make sure i knew where everything went. surprisingly, the pattern pieces are so well marked i found this WAY easier then any commercial pattern i've ever used! i sewed the seams on the outside just so i could see my markings and placements. it actually looks cool highlighting the unique piecing of this jacket.

im not sure i want to do that weird little gathered thing in the middle of the back on the top. its strange. and i like the deep v on the back without it, also i didnt put the flap with the eyelets on the back on the practive version either though i will on the final.

i kept noticing it saying something about "corset back" which confused me at first because as far as i can tell there is no corset-ry in here...so i think maybe thats just a turn of phrase?

one question, whats the deal with that button stand? where does that go? thats my only missing piece!

Commercial patterns are a total mystery to me, I hate them.  A real production pattern like this is so much better.

Don't forget to check the original post for your questions!  We wondered about the button stand too.  It goes on the end of the right sleeve.  It buttons to piece #1 (and the basque if you close it 'showstudio style'.)

Wow, I can't believe you've gotten so far already! I'd better get working.. this thing is kinda intimidating.

oh oh oh! something just came to me! when it says "a'cheval", which the other thread determined meant something like "of the horse" on the hemline maybe they meant sewing a horsehair braid along the hem to support the shape of the garment and make that little tail part stick out more! ( horsehair braid can be bought in the notions section and is a polyester strand that is stiff and is usually added to the hemline of crinolines and wedding dresses)
eh?eh? youd just tuck it in there as you line the edge with grosgrain. if you're using a heavy fabric or a thick interfacing this wouldnt be necessary of course. Smiley

Here's one that's puzzling me.. on piece 5, there's the line marked "straight grain" but then up towards the front shoulder (near point C) there's another, lighter line, facing in another direction, with more text nearby (facing in yet another direction) that also says straight grain.  Was it designed to be made from an actual sewn union jack flag?
