This Marcy Tilton design has been so versatile that I have made 4 jackets from this pattern.
The first one I made was a little evening jacket. I used this fabric a black and silver lace like fabric.
This fabric was great as it doesn’t fray so edges didn’t need finishing. It was a really quick make.
Next was my grey felted fabric
on the left is the outside and the right the inside it’s a really interesting wool. A really fun layering piece .I featured it in my MMMay16 week 4.
The next jacket I made is an interpretation I altered it this time by making it longer and I added pockets . The fabric I used was from a box of fabric given to me years ago that had come from a menswear factory. I used two different pieces of wool .
The top one is a boiled wool and the bottom is a herringbone wool suiting. I lined it with my brown bemsilk lining that I purchased a whole roll of from Tessuti a few years ago . It is so good.
This is a lovely warm jacket to wear . Its first outing was to the rugby and it was great.
The latest make was using the boiled wool again but this time I made a short jacket and I tried my hand at felting for the first time.
I love it how fun this is.
If you get a chance try it.
It is easy and quick .
Gives you loads of creative options.
This is a fun warm jacket I think the felted details add character .
I am so happy with this make it came together really quickly.
This is the easiest pattern to use and it really lets you play.If you can get it do yourself a favour you will use it . I am a real fan of Marcy Tilton patterns ,she makes really easy to wear designs that are a joy to make.
I am taking part in the September sew for 30 minutes a day.
Not that I need any incentive I would happily sew all day if I could.
This is an incentive by Stars Threads, a member of the Make a garment a month facebook group.
Happy Sewing ,
