|Fabric:||Silk Tweed [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: |
Chanel style jacket pattern specified for fabrics with obvious checks
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I initially wanted to use Vogue 8804 to make this jacket, but I don't like what princess seams do to checks (or oversized houndstooth in this case), especially at the chest area. Thus I used a self drafted pattern that has darts instead of princess seams
Linton silk/cotton tweed, lightweight cotton sateen for the trim
Would you sew it again?
This is now my TNT pattern for fabrics with checks or stripes, as it doesn't break them up in the chest area. I am planning the same jacket in black and white houndstooth with the same trim and a black and white striped lining.
This fabric is soft, loosely woven and luxurious, but it frays and ravels the minute one looks at it, so it was either fully interfacing it, or do the Chanel approach of quilting it to the lining. I did the latter and used China silk as lining.
The original design is a Moschino I had a clipping of, and have lusted after ever since. At first I thought the trim is pulled through loops, looking closely at the picture, I realised that it is actually pulled through buttonholes - so buttonholes I made, 48 of them...
