Does anyone else have this pattern?
I made this jacket last spring as a store display. I made it out of metallic linen and I loved it.
It is a great pattern for top-stitching and as you know, I love to top-stitch!
I also made the tank but out of a light cotton.
The pants are made from linen , They're cropped and I used an old favorite TNT.
Of course being linen, the outfit is very wrinkly but I love it anyway!
Now back to the present.The minute I had finished my Swap, I cut out and made this version of the same Adri jacket.
The fabric is a two-sided denim so what could be better? The collar and lapels have
only one layer and you turn the seam allowances to the outside. I used two spools of polyester thread for the top-stitching. I threaded one of my extra machines with the green thread and that made it very convenient.
Also, I wanted buttonholes instead of the loops, so I added an inch to both. front pieces at the centre line.
For the pants, I used this Pattern.
I had used this pattern for my grey Swap jeans and I knew they were a little big. I used View B and since I thought this style could stand to be a little roomier, I just cut the size C with no alterations and they fit perfectly!.
The back pockets were another Top-stitching Opp.The colour in this photo is terrible though.
I used the contrast side for the sides and the label is to cover up an"oops".
This is the kind of outfit that I love to wear and that will fit very well into my lifestyle.My husband and I are going to Vancouver next week and I'll be taking this with me.

Now on to a UFO, another Adri Pattern.
