Did the fabric work well?

The fabric worked wonderfully. Wool suiting and flannel were a great medium to lighter wool to suit this jacket. I can’t say that I enjoy working with Bemberg Rayon but it yields a beautiful and luxurious lining.

How did the sewing go?

The sewing for this project was a great learning experience since there was just enough opportunity to experiment with tailoring techniques without all the hassle of a completely tailored project. I used the book Jackets for Real People by Palmer Pletsch as a guide and ended up using fusible tricot throughout the jacket for structure as well as some other tailoring techniques including a shoulder stay and sleeve head supports. This jacket was more fitted than I expected and the back seam and princess seams were really helpful in getting a good fit.

What was the best part?

I had a great time planning this project. I was able to experiment with stripe placement as this jacket has those awesome shoulder yokes to play with. Wouldn’t they look amazing with piping?!? I also couldn’t resist mixing fabrics. Originally I planned on making the entire jacket in stripes, but when I did a mock sketch of the jacket with the gray wool sleeves, I just had to see that idea become a reality.
