Unembellished Jacket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The finished product! I love, love, love the end result. The fit was tricky considering I wanted it fitted and it is made in jersey. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The appeal of this jacket for me is the fit; especially in the back. I got the fit I wanted using my dress form. I suggest you check the fit repeatedly if you are adjusting the pattern to be fitted.

What you will need

  • I used a double layer of cotton jersey and stitched it with button and craft thread. Vogue 8932.

This is beautiful. Thinking of taking this class. Is it hard?
BiAnCa S answered:
Thank you! It is not hard at all, though labor intensive and requires patience. All of the skills build upon the next to create a heavily embellished piece. As a newbie, I suggest making the "basic" items to develop your stitching skills then move up to more elaborate items. I am proud of all or my pieces and know you will love yours too!
