O.k. I found a great pattern for the jacket and I still have 4 weeks left :) yeah.
The pattern is another pattern from a 1998 burda wof
Oktober 1998 modell 125
I'm going to make a hopefully wearable muslin first and make the shawl collar before morphing it into a spikey edge and making it with an obi like belt :)
The fabric for the muslin is a stretchy eggplant coloured fabric that I got at a "final sale" of a fabric store for 1 Euro a Meter
O.k. the muslin is try-on-able ;) and fits pretty well, so on to the silk
( the first of the SaS fabrics...)
The pic is made a lot lighter because of the dark dark darkness here :)
And the second sleeve is still not attached ( today 01.03.07)
The sewing of the actual jacket was uneventfull EXCEPT for easing in the sleeves....
And now that the jacket is done ( lined, sleeve heads and EVERYTHING ) the lining binds and the shoulders are way too wide.... You'll see it when I post a pic at the weekend.
So here it is :)
Not toooooo close to the Gwen Stefani jacket but I just did understand how to make a double layer facing
The obi belt is the quick and dirty ähm easy project from Threads issue 118 and it is easy and coool :)
Hope you like it.... leave a comment if you do :)
