My first Jacket Express!

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is the first jacket I ever made... I cant' believe it is actually wearable!!! And of course: I did not use a single pin!!! THANK YOU Janet!!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I got for Christmas an extension table for my sewing machine as well as a 1/4" quilters foot - they were both fantastic to finish the project.

What you will need

  • Stretch Velvet

It looks great!! I love the fabric and the buttons. Can't wait to make one for myself. It's encouraging to see how good this style looks on you.

Very Nice. I Love the fabric and your topstitching is fabulous too!
valeriabrev answered:
Thank you Janet for all your good teaching - I could not have made it without your help! I liked the fabric as well - but just had 2 yards.... let's put it like this: for a size M, I just had a couple of square inches left over from cutting!!! :-) again thanks, If you decide to give any other course on craftsy for sure I will enroll!!
