You know when you are a creative there are some things that speak to you and fill you with possibilities a pattern a fabric a colour a print they are all windows to the creative process. I have many patterns but this one I have made twice now and will again it just works for me.
I have made this jacket first in a reversible jacquard that is a little formal .
This is a lovely jacket to wear very comfortable and a little formal on the pink side and more casual on the red . I used the selvage on this for the centre front . I think it works well.
I saw this fabric at Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne it is from a tablecloth I loved the colours and the fringing so bought a big enough one to make my jacket using both the selvage and the fringes.
After wearing the jacket I found the cotton to be a little coarse and hard on my body so I have now lined it in some lime green cotton voile .
This makes it much more comfortable and easy to wear . I love it .
Hope you are able to create when the mood strikes.
Happy Sewing 🧵
Love your jackets. Not that I’ve made anything for a long time but it gets me inspired particularly the tablecloth one. Did you use 2 tablecloths. Cheers Lynda
Brilliant! I particularly love the way you incorporated the selvedge and fringing.
