A "Muslin" :)

Added Oct 13, 2008

The initial idea for this project was to make a muslin to try the pattern. But, I’ve never made a muslin in my sewing career because I have always been so impatient and anxious to see the outcome of my work. Therefore, my muslin turned into a real sewing project. The only difference is that I used a really cheap fabric from my stash, instead of red wool I’m still trying to find in local fabric shops. The pattern is from BWOF 8/2008, #115. Love the result :).

Material Notes

Stretchy denim
Viscose for the lining I had in my stash but never sewed anything from it because I didn’t like the print
Buttons that my aunt gave me (they’re like 15 years old :)

    Ann, I really like the result. The work is perfect! The collar is something and the whole model is great!

    I just got this issue and believe it or not, I’m going to make this jacket sometime. Your version is looks really cool and only boosts me to find some fabric for it. I’m sure your red one will look just as good!

    Great jacket! I reckon making a cheapy is a idea, as it will not get wasted.

    I really like the shape of this jacket and it looks just fine in denim. I hope you find the red wool you’re searching for.
