Description

Colette Patern, lady grey. Finaly completed!! This was a bit of a stretch of the sewing skills- lets just say I have come to zen terms with the quick unpick. I’m not so happy with the fit at the back. I think in hindsight (sigh), the back peices needed a little shortening around the arm hole as there’s a bit of baginess around that area. In honesty, between making the muslin and the jacket I think I had selectively forgotten this adjustment was required because it was getting cold and I needed the jacket fast!! I didn’t use the horse hair canvas as suggested as it was a little tricky getting some and I really had to finish it quickly in the end. I do have some slight regrets about this. Overall though, I really love this jacket and would very much recomend the pattern.

    Wow, you’re disappointed with your work? True artist! I don’t see the flaws in any way that you mention and it looks like dream on. Your seams all look impeccable and the fit looks to be just right. I haven’t even mentioned the fact that you look very fashion forward in this style. Nicely done!

    Gorgeous Flo – it looks impeccably made as usual with your things! I think all that quilting has given you the straightest stitching in the world! I love the sleeve length and the lovely colour – I only wish you had a pic showing the lining! xx caitlin
