I’ve been dying to make a jacket from one of my many patterns, but have been a bit intimidated..so I did a test run with some flannel.
I didn’t use a pattern, I unpicked an existing jacket and used the pieces to create a new pattern, altering the sleeves, length, and collar.
It didn’t turn out how I would have liked, I wanted it to have a bit more “swing” in the body, but at least it fits well.
Also, my fear of jacket making has diminished:)
Everyone on this site who has made a beautiful jacket, which led to my jacket envy, which led to my trying something new…Thanks
No need to go outside… spend the morning in dolled up in this collection of vintage style pajamas.
