Sunday sewing-11/11/07

I had pleasant morning to sew yesterday. I could have completed the jacket if I had a maid and a cook!

The jacket has gone together rather easily. The fabric is fairly easy to sew. Since the jacket does not have a lining and I did not want to make one, this has been a pretty quick project. I only have to finish the hems for jacket and sleeves, make the buttonholes and sew on the buttons.

This is the jacket on Alma Marie. Here is a close up shot of the neckline. Pattern calls for the darts to be stitched and exposed on the outside. I did not want to do this with this fabric. I just did not think that the darts in the microfiber fabric would lie as well as a natural fabric, like wool. Next time, and I think there will be, I will sew them on the outside.

The skirt is ready to sew now. I just need to find a rose-red zipper that is close enough to match. I thought I had one in my zipper stash, but not.


  1. Very pretty. I love the rose color and the way the darts are across the front. I don't think I would like it as much with exposed darts.
    Can't wait to see the entire outfit.

  2. The jacket looks great. I like the look of it. Not so traditional!

  3. It looks beautiful! I love this model!
