And another jacket for Miss M.
A few months ago I sewed her a skirt with dots.
I found the lining fabric on eBay and the mushrooms with the dots brought me to the idea to sew a suitable jacket for the skirt.
I didn’t have to think long about the motive for the application. I copied a piece of fabric and printed it in different sizes.
Okay, the colors are very spring-like but I hope she’ll like it anyway when she gets it tomorrow 🙂
When I’ve sewn the girls dress with the school supplies I found remains of french terry fabric I used for a hooded jacket. Not enough for another jacket for myself, but enough for a little girls hooded sweat jacket.
I’ve made 6,7 or 8 hooded jackets for myself but this small jackets are way more complicated hehe
I started with an very easy jacket, Nothing special! I used the dress fabric as lining for the hood.
Here my first jacket for Miss M 🙂
My next jacket has been more elaborated 😀
I used this jacket to learn how to applique
Remember the maritime dress with the paper boats?
I had more than enough fabric left over when the dress has been done.
First I searched the net for drawings of a paper boat. I printed my found in different sizes and sewn it on the back of my jacket
The front got a paper boat too. This time with Miss M’s initials. I also made piping with the lining fabric
For lining the hood and the front I used the dress fabric. For the back lining I took the pocket fabric
Front of the jacket
Yes, I know. The pockets are a little displaced
Back of the jacket.
Unfortunality I put the paper boats a little to high on the back. The hood is covering part of the boats 😦
When I started working in the laboratory I shared my office with a co-worker. Over the years she became my favorite because she always has been calm when it has been stress at work and I could always talk with her when I had problems.
We even had the same habit to be very picky in all we do hihi
Now she retired 😦
Of course she got a departing gift when she left but I wanted to make her something special.
She loves to wear jackets all the time. I asked her if she would like to have a new one made by me and she said yes 🙂
I made a lot of photos from all fabrics suitable for jackets in my fabric store.
She choosed “her” fabric and I started my first jacket in my sewing course. Lets say it straight, without help in my course I couldnt have made it!
A jacket with “her” fabric only would have been too boring. So I added some black woolen to it.
For cutting the fabric I needed 3 saturdays!!! I wanted the pattern be perfect.
Yes I’m picky hihi 😀
To make this jacket needed way more time then I expected but it was worth all this time.
I call this jacket my Masterpiece ❤ ❤ ❤
I’m still missing you at work Misses H. 🙂
On the next photos you can see why I needed 3 sewing courses to cut the fabric!
