|Pattern Description: |
I drafted the pattern according to an inspiration photo I found on the net. As I made this as part of the Pattern Review RTW contest I decided to make it as similar as I could to the original inspiration, mostly to test how close I could make the garment to the original thing.
I think the pattern came out pretty close, my pattern sports princess seams and 6 godets that were inserted into the princess seams, a peter pan collar and a button down front.
One thing that does bother me is the fact that it's not fitted enough at the waist like the original jacket was.
Shoulders are a bit to big and the same goes for the waist.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
At some point I was a little over whelmed with all the hand sewing that the godets needed.
Some sort of poly-cotton blend that had a wool-y feeling.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably wouldn't sew it again as this is one of those jackets you only need one of. BUT I may use this technique to draft a godet blouse. Hmm!
