Information on attached pictures

One of my lovely customers named May kindly submitted the pictures of the jacket she made from this vintage pattern. It took her only 3 days to complete, with no alterations required. She made a toile first to be safe.

She stated, “I added interfacing to pieces, (cheated and used fusible interfacing). The sleeves have 2 darts each really adding shape. Covered buttons to co-ordinate with the fabrics brown on pattern and vice versa. Completed the garment. I am going to buy and add small shoulder pads, which the pattern calls for.”

Fabrics – Patterned is a large pansy in yellow, white and brown. Vintage sateen Sanderson curtain fabric.  2 meters

Contrast: Chocolate brown taffeta left over from a dress 1/2 meter. Both of these were left over from a dress I made last year (2017).
