The Starlet Suit Jacket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I finished this jacket I felt it was a real challenge for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a muslin first to be sure of your fit.

What you will need

  • Jacket is a magenta raw silk lined in a pale yellow silk. I used vintage shell buttons.

Q&A with Nancy Jane York

sflynnie asked:
This jacket looks terrific! Wish you were in the SF Bay Area. I'd love to find other sewers,
Nancy Jane York answered:
I have no one in this area to sew with either!!
sflynnie asked:
Who helps you with fit? Or do you have a dress form.
Nancy Jane York answered:
The dress form does not fit across my back well so that is never accurate. I'm going to start and make a muslin from now on. I learned that on another Crafty class. The Couture Dress that's a great class if you haven't taken it.
