Fukushima Jacket

Added Oct 25, 2011

by apfelbluete

Duesseldorf, Ger...






I named this jacket cause my main associaction with it is about Fukushima.
I followed the news with great concerns about the affected people in Japan during the times I did sew this jacket, which is my first one as outerwear. Most of it is in haute couture technique.
The original had fake bags only. I did real ones.

    Job well done. I have this pattern and have been contemplating doing it. You have done a really professional job. Hope, when I decide to attempt it I do an equally good job.

      That was my first jacket I’ve ever done. If I’ve done it you can do it-guaranteed!

    When I first clicked on this, I was like hmm..that looks kind of familiar! I just finished this same pattern!!! I love how yours turned out. The fabric is beautiful and I especially like what you did with the pocket!

    Liebe Apfelbluete!

    Es ist eine Augenweide dieses Meisterwerk anzuschauen, die Verarbeitung der Pattentaschen, so exact und sauber zu arbeiten verlangt ausser Geduld auch einiges an Fachwissen, -Complimenti !!

      danke sehr:-)
      ich bin immer noch dabei, zu lernen. vieles am Jacket habe ich mit hilfe meiner lehrerin gemacht.Sie zeigt mir Haute couture techniken.die wattierung ist ein geheimnis der russischen meisterinen.die ist per hand angebracht und befindet sich zwischen den nähten, somit bleib jacket sehr dynamisch…

    This jacket is wonderful! I just love the neckline, you did a fantastic job. I’m envious, I have so much trouble with fitted jackets. But after seeing this one I am almost willing to try, try agian…

    Beautiful! I have this pattern too but in Australia it will have to wait till the weather cools down again before I make it but your version is VERY inspiring! Simply stunning.

      My jacket has also maintained from spring to autumn. It is a good thing. If it’s cold, you do not hurry, it is then finished :-)

      The fabric was a dream. It was so nice to work with it.That’s Italian wool for outerwear.
