I'm moving this thread over from the Patterns forum for those who want to have a sew along. DVM Cindy and I are doing the cute jacket featured.here
I haven't traced it yet, but I did get a beautiful embroidered suedecloth to use that I think will work out perfectly. So... who's in?

Ok, guess I could jump in, though I'm having the most awful flu at the moment with eye infection too, you really wouldn't want to see me now, LOL!!!

Anyways, what are we supposed to do in sew along??, sharing tips, sharing the fabric info, what else?

One tip right from the start, I layed the patterns on the fabric (lipstick red silk faille) yesterday and noticed that a stretch of 1.65m and 1.40m wide was enough, so I urge you to check out the need by placing the patternpieces on some yardage before going to buy some extra gorgeous and expensive stuff.

My pattern is in size 34 and I'd be able to cut the pieces in two directions, but if your fabric has nap or pattern that requires one way cutting then the need for fabric might be more, but it pays to shift the patternpieces around a bit.

:hug:'s Marita

Yes sew-alongs are all that you stated plus motivation to finish! I'm waiting for some swatch requests so I will be cutting fabric in 2 weeks or so. Thanks for the tip!!

um, don't know if I add same hem allowance to peplum lining as I did the peplum? I don't think I will try "bagging" this lining as the jacket lining and peplum linings are separate and that is confusing me. Any ideas as to how everyone is doing their lining?

It sounds to me that the peplum lining is like a free-hanging skirt lining in that it does not attach to the peplum except at the waist seam and perhaps tacked at the side seams. The pattern states that the lining only has a 5/8" hem and the jacket itself has 1.25 " hem. I havent traced my pattern yet, but may try to get to it this weekend (or even before if Im lucky!)

OK--I think I'm going to join this, too! Nancy, I saw your post on the Burda Yahoo group, but came over here for more details! Did you get that gorgeous fabric at JoAnn's? I went looking there today, and couldn't find the matelasse. But I saw some fall suitings (some wool, some polyester) that I thought might work, and then I saw some embroidered moleskin that I also thought looked nice. I was hoping to come over here and find out what others were thinking in line of other fabric choices. I've never done a sew a long before, so this seems sort of exciting!

Check out the entries on the message board entitled pattern reviews as well(where the 121 idea got started.) I wrote something about fabric. Very excited to have you on board.
Nancy, I think I got the SA figured out. I promise I won't ask ANOTHER question until I'm at the end of the jacket!

No more questions????!!!! I'm hurt (Just kidding)
Yes, I did get that fabric at JoAnn's. I think it was called "embroidered alova suedecloth" It may be a challenge to work with because it says "do not iron, do not dryclean; wash by hand, lay flat to dry" Well, I guess this means a poly lining for sure since ambiance wrinkles terribly. Also, I'm going to have to make some kind of velva board for pressing the seams. But, I really like the drapiness of this fabric. I may underline the bodice to make it a little warmer... but I was thinking flannel and that would have to be ironed. Hmmm.
I'm excited to see others jumping in on this one

I joined the Burda yahoo group yesterday. Nancy, underling sounds dreadful, cutting out the thing 3 times..... but with something like this it's best to make it look its best! I have a muslin sewn together. wow. niiiice. Burda fits me well. (I have broad shoulders.) Reverse curves came out nice after I finally read how to do them correctly. Been sewing princess seams for 2 years without easing!! Sleeve is adorable with it's 2 pieces.
