Short Alden

Brooklyn, New Yo...






I made a short, lighter version of the Alden Coat. I also added some ruffles and instead of lining I finished it with pink bias tape. I didn’t have any problems with the pattern and recommend it to everyone interested.

    I like someone else that commented on your work, joined because I saw your jacket. It inspired me to stop being lazy and to start really sewing.

    Thank you!!

    Wow! The ruffles completely transform the dress- I liked the original design but you just put a whole new twist on it which I love. Congrats!

    It’s a beautiful jacket. Love all the details in the back. If Isaw you on the street I’d think that you dropped a pretty penny on that one ;) Great job.

    I love those ruffles on the shoulder seam and front yoke! And the inside looks very neat.

    absolutely beautiful! your alterations are great!

    I think to work with the pattern is not so hard, too. Only when you use a very thick wool fabric (like me on my winter coat …) it´s very difficult to sew. It was also much easier for me to sew it with a lighter fabric.

    You did a wonderful job on yours!
