The appeal of the moto look is lost on me but I certainly appreciate a stylish and distinctive garment, and an impressive feat of sewing. Well done.

On my wish list. I've learned so much from your reviews. Did you construct using flat felled seams?

What a great jacket. The mix of fabrics is just right. Great sewing and great fit.

Dilliander said...
Thanks for the kind comments. Rose, the seams are normal, trimmed to reduce bulk, pressed to one side then topstitched (not flat felled).

Gorgeous jacket and excellent review. I think you have pointed me (yet again) in the direction of the pattern I should use. I procrastinated ordering but will definitely do so soon.

Absolutely amazing. Your choice of fabric is so lovely (I would have never dreamed of it in those colors!) and the finishing impeccable. I'm always in awe of the things you make, and this is no exception! Even your muslin looks beautiful! :)

Thank you for your link to the moto trend info. Your jacket is a very elegant use of this trend....which CAN get overdone and seems to be an uncomfortable sacrifice to fashion. Yours is a perfect combo of fashion, comfort and style. plus your color choices are excellent. As always an awesome review and an awesome jacket from an awesome sewist!!!

A fabulous jacket and a very helpful review. I love the details on this jacket and you've executed perfectly. A pleasure to see such a well made garment. I need more motorcycle jackets! I want to make another one in leather and this pattern looks perfect.

How's the ease on this pattern? I'm between sizes and I would like to know more to decide.
2/7/14 11:37 AM
Dilliander said...
Hi lomeraniel, I sewed my usual 8 with the adjustments mentioned. Its a good fit and (for me) the right amount of ease after the small adjustment to back width. Perhaps try contacting StyleArc as their customer service is great and they are usually happy to assist with size selection.

This jacket is absolutely gorgeous! After looking at your impressive sewing here, I checked out some of you other reviews, and I think it's time for you to change your "sewing skills" self-ranking from intermediate to advanced. (Seriously; this is very skilled work.)
