Bomber jacket of many colors

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My first zippers look pretty good, same with my first welt pockets (ya gotta love you tube), and the collar and hem ribbing. The quilting looks best from a distance. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Burda instructions are for people who don't need instructions. I was into the woods here with lining and insulating and quilting and inside pockets. This was far from express. But I loved Janet's burrito concept, and with a bit more experience I will be tossing my pin cushion, maybe. When I venture into the real deal, silk and not poly, I will publish that. The back drop is the Bridger range in Montana, btw.

What you will need

  • Bargain "costume" polyester
  • wool rib knit and Thinsulate interlining.

Q&A with Michel des Tetons

Great job with such a slippery fabric. Cant wait to see the silk one.
Michel des Tetons answered:
Not to mention that it frayed to high heaven. I finally overcast the raw edges after fiighting it for a couple weeks. Thanks.!
Janet Pray asked:
What a great idea, I love the bold colors and the unexpected fabric type! Don't toss the pin cushion especially if you are moving on to silks. But do get silk pins. Now that you have taken the class you will use less pins, but you'll need a few now and again. Happy Sewing, Janet
Michel des Tetons answered:
Depite all the mistakes, the jacket gets great comments by passers-by, although that could be due to the boldness of the colors. I need to add several inches to the sleeve length (I am more closely related to the great apes than most humans) but I'm quite excited to make this in the silk. Stay tuned. And thanks for the great class.
