Lady Navy

My first attempt at the Lady Grey Jacket pattern by Colette Patterns. What an awesome design and great pattern.

I was spurred on by Sunnilj’s stunning jacket.

I had a couple of small problems with this but am happy with the way it turned out.
The collar isn’t quite in the right place, it should be stretched round a bit further over each lapel.
There is a small rip at the CB where i tried it on a little too enthusiastically while it was still in production and ripped a notch (definitely going to tack my markings in from now on rather than snipping them)
My hand stitiching of hems and cuffs also leaves a little to be desired.

Material Notes

cotton drill, cotton




Garment Type
Classic, Vintage

      Found your fabric yet?
      I’m going to make this again in a purple/aubergine(!!) fabric with a bright yellow patterned lining.
      I’m going to make it a inch or two longer and am going to add a bit more ease in the back as it’s fine when it’s on but it’s a bit of a struggle to get on.
