Sewing Projects

As I noted in my post yesterday, I am starting work on Simplicity 3631.
I cut out the pattern today for the jacket and the skirt. I thought I would start sewing on it today. But I changed my plan.

I decided that I wanted to go ahead and pin fit the Vogue 7975 pattern as I want to make a Chanel style jacket. It seems several of us have posted about this pattern and the desire to make a Chanel jacket. I pin fitted the jacket pattern and made the usual adjustments-forward shoulder (FSA), swayback, and full bust adjustment (FBA). As usual I used the petite adjustment for the sleeve length. So now this jacket is ready for me to cut out.

Here is a look at the Simplicity jacket and the fabric I will be using. It is a rose red color, Pantone 18-1633.

The Vogue jacket is going to be made from another stash fabric, a black and white boucle. This fabric was acquired from either Fabric Mart or Vogue Fabrics. Unfortunately I have not taken a photo of this one either. I will post later.

Tomorrow I hope to at least get the serger and sewing machine set up to begin sewing the Simplicity project. If I can do this before work, then after exercise tomorrow evening, I will layout the fabric and lining for the Vogue jacket.

  1. Very pretty rose color. I think it will look great on you. Will be reading your blog to follow your progress. You really inspire me.

  2. Good luck with both your Simplicity jacket (beautiful colour, I think it will look great on you) and the Vogue Chanel-like jacket (you're right, at least three of us are working on that:)). Black and white boucle sounds so gorgeous to me! Did you find trim, I really have a difficult time finding both trim and nice metallic buttons. I think I'll probably end up braiding my own trim and maybe beading some buttons, like Summerset did.

  3. The Simplicity jacket looks like the ones I see in the stores that are all the rage in our area. I laugh looking through sale flyers and see swing jackets are in here this fall. Didn't you make one last year? I like that color you chose to do it in.
