A Flannel jacket

Added May 1, 2012

Cologne, Germany







It had been a while, but now I want to present you a new jacket. This time, I used again – after a long time – the Mller system to get a pattern. As before, I am not satesfied with the sleeves… and next time I would make the waist a bit smaler in the side and loosen it a bit more in the back.

Shoulderdarts, to get my shoulderblades in :)

The whole jacket is fused, without any hand stitched inlays as I do normally. Just wanted to find out how the industrie does it. Well… for having a casual jacket, it is great because it saves a lot of time, but for formal garments, it would not be my choice again.

My first hand stichted buttonholes… well, I know! I have to improve it!

So long

    Ohhh, LOVE. It looks beautiful and so stylish. I want to try making a jacket or overcoat for my husband, but that will be a fall activity. Summer will include some new shirts, and maybe a pair of jeans! Thank you for posting.

    Wow, this is impeccable! I have a jacket planned for my husband that I can only hope turns out half as good as yours. Beautiful work.

    OMG please tell me more about the entire process. Do you think Müller is any good? I’m thinking about buying one of their books for pattern drafting. Also, that jacket looks amazing, buttonholes included. You should make a video on how to construct a jacket! :) Pretty please?

      Hey :)

      Müller is good… I would say, the best! But it requieres a lot from you! You have to study it very well. Some things are not written in their books and you have to think yourself a lot! If you are really interested in pattern making, so start with Müller and stick with it! All the other books systems won’t give you the result which Müller will give you. It is a long way, but worth it.

      But for making a Sakko, you also need a lot of tailoring experiences… especially in inlays which do support the pattern.

      Hmm, I had a look at their website, but even there I find it hard to figure out what book they need. And they are expensive too! But maybe it’s worth it.
      I’ll have to start saving ;)

      depends with what do you want to start. Shirts? Then take the shirt book… even with underwear, sweatshirts, t-shirts and so on… or formal wear like coats, vests, trousers, then take the other ones ;)

      I tell you, it IS worth it! :)

      the last one is for womenware… jacket and coats. I have it, but this does not help you.

      The difference between the other two… well, the blue one, which I have also, is just about jackets. No waistcoats, no coats, no nothing! The yellow book I do not know. But there is written “Westen”… so waistcoats and jackets are in there… but if trousers and coats? No idea.

      I have an older book, which they do not sell anymore. There you had everything. Jackets, Trousers, Coats, Waistcoats. The blue one has also some drafts out of the old book… maybe you can write Müller a Message and ask them.

      Yes, it’s that ‘all-in-one’ book that I want :)

      Do you have a reference for it? So that I know what to ask for? Name or ISBN number?

      Thanks man, I really appreciate it :)

      The all in one book is without shirts and you have to pay a lot atention to the ease. The drafts are or were from the 90’s were it was modern to have large jackets ;)

    OMG. I am in love with those jeans! Did you make those yourself? And the buttonhole is amazing, very well done especially if that’s your first try.
