|Pattern Description: Princess seamed jackets A, B have long sleeves, front button closure and optional underlining; jacket B has contrasting pieced fronts, side fronts are underlined; jackets A, B have contrast belt and cuffs.|
I made view A, but I colorblocked it and used the shorter sleeves from view B.
I also made the necklace from the leftover red wool.
Pattern Sizing: 8-20. I made a size 14, with a generous FBA.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not so much, but I made intentional changes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Sure.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the basic silhouette and the opportunities for using different fabrics. I also like that it's princess seam, which is good for fitting.
Fabric Used: A mix of fabrics. Mostly wools and synthetic lining fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I omitted the collar. After doing the FBA, I ended up reshaping the front a bit. The jacket is unlined and I lined it.
I didn't have enough of the red wool for the sleeves, so I pieced them. I inserted self made piping in between the seams. This might be my favorite feature.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might sew it again. I like the shape.
Conclusion: I made this jacket for the FabricMart Fashion Competition. The point of this challenge was to use "things you would throw away" such as scraps, or unconventional materials, or you could refashion a garment.
