Stacy, that is gorgeous! The shine in your lining/bias binding actually looks shimmery on my screen. It adds SUCH a nice touch. Great job and terrific jacket!

Yup, this jacket is outstanding in its field. Beautiful lining! And I fully agree (hrrrumph) about seemingly sweet denim that stretches....should be reserved for pillows or dog beds...(sorry, doggie, no disrespect intended) But your jacket turned out marvelously! :)

This is tremendously helpful to me as I am just about to start sewing my Wrapture after making a muslin - and sorting out those sleeves! Can you tell us how wide you cut your bias binding? It appears that you did not bind the front seam and hem edge. How did you get around that?

Beautiful and very flattering. Love your color combo.

Beautiful work of art and I enjoyed your review. Looks fabulous on you.

I made the bias binding 1/2" wide (I went back and measured, I probably used about 2 1/2 yards to enclose the pockets, collar, and cuff edges). The way the instructions are written the jacket lining & facings are attached to the jacket so that all the raw edges are enclosed. It's not necessary to bind the front seam and edges - which is good in this case because I wouldn't have made enough bias bindings!

Great jacket, very nice quilted lining. And cool binding trim. Love your stand alone shot...its saying "G'day! Come on and take me out!" Thank God for FM bundles , you can make so many different jackets with this fabulous versitile pattern.

Beautiful jacket and I love your trim & lining! I'm starting my muslin this weekend, will be using your review for reference. Thanks for all the details!

Nice jacket and fit you well! You should definitely wear it open, it does not make you look boxy, and lining adds nice touch.

mudcat said...
Wow, this is lovely on you. It's not even one I considered buying but it's definitely better in person.

Great jacket. Really nice job.

That looks great! Nice fabric, nice trim, nice fit, nice style. I'd say it's nice. Even though the fabric is stiff, it certainly looks find in the picture on you.

Sherril Miller said...
Very nice. I love that fabric and just bought 3 yards. Thanks for the warning about the stretch. I did notice that it stretched the length instead of crosswise.

This is really a knockout! Great job!

Oh, huzzah! Now both the HotPatterns I own have been reviewed and get high marks! Your jacket really is lovely, I'm so glad to see it. Your _finished_ binding is 1/2" wide, right? How wide did you cut it to start with? Thanks!
1/13/06 11:42 AM
Stacy Sews said...
Julia - I cut each strip 2" wide on the bias (thank goodness for cutting mats and rotary cutters!). I made the bias tape the hard way too (I didn't have a tape maker in the size), so I sewed the strips together, then folded raw edges together to make a crease then folded the raw edges toward the crease and pressed again. It took awhile to do it like this, but definatley worth it so I didn't have to make a trip to the store!

diane s said...
Your jacket is great, I bet you are thrilled. I have some of the same denim and it's the first time I had a stretch woven that stretched lengthwise instead of crosswise. I had to turn my pieces in the opposite direction!

Harriet Rogers said...
Wow! Love your version of this jacket: the colors, workmanship, the quilting of lining, the binding: all perfect!!

Melody said...
When I saw this pattern on the HP website, I didn't think I liked it but your version is just beautiful and I'm even tempted to get some of that denim from JoAnn's despite your warning. Thanks for the great review.

Your colours and textures in this jacket are beautiful. Worthy of FTV! You look so pretty!

The colours and textures in your jacket are beautiful. Worthy of FTV! You look so pretty! Being so slender you can carry off the extra padding of a quilted lining and the shine of the jacquard.
