I have had this pattern for quite some time, and for some reason keep putting off making it. It is the 1945 jacket from Fashion Sewing Group.
I made the FSG coat, and it was really easy. So why do I keep postponing this one? I have already bought fabric 4 times to make this, and yet, it is still unmade. I have a black wool flannel and 3 expensive (anything over $20 /yard is expensive in my book) pieces from Nancy Erickson.
this is the first fabric I purchased to make this jacket. It is called "Latte Tweed"
This is the "multi tweed" and it is very pretty, but kind of has an orange cast. I'm not sure how much I like it or how well it will fit with other clothes I have. I still think it"s a great fabric for fall.I just signed up for the stitch and flip class from Shannon Gifford and want to make this jacket. The jacket must be already fit before we start the class. I'm hoping to make the shell out of the multi colored tweed to get the fit right
and then make the jacket in the olive and black tweed for the class. This fabric also came from N.E. It is a beautiful 100% wool and I have black ambiance for the lining. This one also fits into my SWAP, but then I will need to change a couple of things. The original Jacket for my swap was also my qualifying purchase from Timmel Fabrics. So I may have to re think that whole thing.
Anyway, I'm anxious for the class.
