We used this OOp pattern V7610 by Sandra Betzina.
I don't have pics of their completed jackets yet but I'll show you the one I made to illustrate each step along the way.
The fabric is a heavy weight denim which reverses from brown to dark blue. It was in a bin at Fabricville and there was only a meager meter and it had a serious flaw running the width of the piece close to one end. I cut 3/8" seam allowances and somehow managed to avoid the flaw and to cut all the pieces except the facings.
because of the 3/8" seams , I couldn't Hong Kong finish my seams ,so I serged them using a decorative rayon serger thread. Looks great doesn't it!
I used a denim look print for the facings.
I changed the shape of the pocket to make it easier for all of us. That rounded pocket with the center point is not easy to achieve and I wanted to avoid the aggravation I knew that would cause.As you see, I used navy top stitching thread because some of the blue is visible through the brown in this fabric and I love the look.
Don't you love the buttons I found at Fabricville? They are a coppery brass colour and just perfect!.
Oh dear. The back is wrinkled but you can tell I've already enjoyed wearing my jacket and I have to tell you , I felt pretty cool with it worn with dark blue denim skinny jeans and a navy Tshirt.
I love this thing and so do my ladies. I can promise that you'll be impressed with their results when I post them.
