It had to happen, I knew as soon as I saw this silk mix it would be another jacket and guess what I have found, the Little French Jacket sewalong.
The icing on the cake for this sewalong is that both of the organisers, Leisa from A Challenging Sew and Inna from Thewallinna have both attended Susan Khalje’s – classic French Jacket course and Susan Khalje has also offered to consult along the way!
I would love to attend one of Susan’s classes but at this stage that is a dream so even though I have plenty of projects on my wish list, I’ve decided to join this one as well.
There have been a number of discussions so far and the schedule has been posted.
I’m going to use Vogue 7975 again, it has been fitted for me and so far I have made two Chanel inspired jackets from this pattern (well the 2nd one is progressing) so I am not going to do the muslin that started on October 7.
Seeing I’m not 100% certain what else is mixed with the silk, I will do a burn test and then figure out how to pre-treat the fabric. The girls at The Remnant Warehouse did advise not to dry clean it as they felt it would loose some of its lovely hand.
It will be fun working out what colour the lining will be, looks like I need to go shopping and I’m not even sure where to start with the trim!
