Description

This took me quite some time to finish, but I’m happy about the result!
It’s a scuba kind of fabric, made of two layers, with stretch. I used a stretchy fabric with little birds as lining (which almost unfortunately doesn’t show when I’m wearing it haha).
Made some parts with stitches on the sleeves and on the back, but that’s hard to see on the pictures. I never used any hardware before so that was a challenge, and I was quite nervous about messing it up. Note to self: first hardware, then lining… Pattern is from Knipmode.
Had to be patient for it to be finished, and now I have to be patient to wear it because it’s way too warm for jackets over here!

      Thanks! I usually think the Knip patterns fit me quite well, I hardly have to do modifications. It also helps that the fabric is somewhat stretchy. It sometimes had a mind of its own and it’s quite thick fabric so that made it a little hard to work with, but on the other hand it’s perfect for jackets.

    Wonderful jacket! Yesterday I was watching video about trends for next autumn and girl was talking about different shades of red (actually I think, red is always in trend :) So, you are three times lucky: to have pleasant time sewing your jacket, to get the wonderful jacket as a result and to be happy trendy girl in autumn! ))
