|Pattern Description: |
Chanel style boxy but fitted jacket
I cut a 12 but had to tweak it a bit to get it more fitted in the waist
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes from a distance, no from close up because of several changes I made (described in my earlier review).
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Claire Shaeffer's instructions ar detailed and excellent
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the fit and that this is a great style that goes with everything
Silk/Viscose Tweed from Linton, silk charmeuse for the the lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Apart from the changes I mentioned in my review of the same style (black jacket) before, I also changed the grain line of the front sleeve, it now runs parallel to the sleeve seam.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'll probably use this pattern as my go to pattern for collarless jackets. It's like a chameleon and can be adapted in many ways
It's a great pattern, a bit like a blank canvas. As I mentioned before, sizes run a bit large, if you are between sizes it's best to choose the smaller one.
The project is time consuming, but very rewarding, you end up with a great fitting and very comfortable jacket. This jacket I quilted by hand - the tweed is densely woven and I didn't want the quilting stitches to show. Thus I choose buttons that represent the amount of time I spent on this project
