Just saw another review of this pattern, checked out all the reviews and saw your beautiful version. I love the Alabama Chanin books and your jacket is really cool. Nice work!

Increadible jacket! A lot of work - typical you :-) I cannot understand why do you have this gaver in the sleeves ... but I will have to check it when sewing my own version.

The jacket is fantastic! And to think you've made it with all hand stitches is amazing! Beautiful work and thank you for the review. :D

Thanks everyone! I really want this to come together! sewingcanary, thanks for the tip about the sleeve. I have stepped away from it and will take your advice when I come back to it. I need fresh eyes.

Your hand stitching totally makes the garment.

Thank you so much for working on this pattern, and posting your review. I loved this jacket pattern when I saw it, but was undecided as to purchasing it. I love how the body looks, good luck on finishing the sleeves. I look forward to your next post. :)

SLEEVE SUGGESTION: Before you go swapping out sleeve patterns, you said youíre working with a cotton jersey. Get your pattern out. Lay out each of the sleeves youíve cut, smooth them well - but donít stretch. Lay the pattern over and see if thereís any difference. Itís super easy to cut pieces a bit too big when the fabric is a double layer of knit - or to find one is a bigger than the other. The line drawing shows a clean finish shoulder and seam. Also, itís a bit harder to do with the bodice mostly complete, but also check the cutting of the other pieces and whether or not your seam allowances are true. Itís surprising how a millimeter here and one there can add up. Even the thickness of the cutting line can make a difference, especially on fitted tailored items. If the pattern was designed for woven fabric, you have the stretch - or ďgiveĒ - factored into it. Consider your cleaning method. If you intend to wash it, and you take out all that ďgatherĒ, when itís washed you will end up with a reverse pucker. If you swap out a sleeve that fits now, it might not fit after washing or cleaning. I did hand sewing during a period where I didnít have a machine. I was mainly using wovens, but overall, the pieces get handled much more than when using a machine. Knits get stretched out of shape. Steaming might help get things back to proper shape. Unless the pattern is truly made wrong, you should be able to work out the bugs. Wishing you the best - bug free!

Wow, it's going to be gorgeous. The fabric almost looks like denim in these pictures. Lovely colour!
