Ever since I saw the first previews online of the MyImage Summer 2011 issue, I knew that this cropped, pieced jacket (M1107) was going on my Must Sew list! I just didn’t know quite how quickly fate would throw us together! Even though MyImage are a new pattern company, other sewers have reported that the sizing was pretty consistent, so I just threw caution to the wind here, made a size 42, and cut into my fabric!
I’ve done the whole ultra-luxe hair canvas and horsehair canvas tailoring on my winter coat, but this jacket is meant to be a casual “throw it on and forget it” coverup for Spring. Neither the style nor the fabric here calls for such heavy tailoring, so I chose to make the shaping as minimal as possible, with just some nice medium-weight woven interfacing on the facings and collar, and a pair of the lightweight black shoulder pads Claire (Seemane) sent to me. For me, the weight and flexibility on this jacket is just perfect.
