I did it! I made me a vintage style jacket! And not any jacket! A 1940s bad girl one!
To be exact, it’s a windbreaker jacket. I used the McCall 6360 pattern, red sued and beige lining.
I made a muslin first, and had to increase lenght of sleeves and neck-to-waist.
And I finally went to the final fabric. I had some troubles with my sewing machine and the thickness of the many layers of suede sometimes. (especially for buttonholes!) . I mostly sewed the lining with machine, and it was really faster!
I LOVE it! It will become one of my most worn jacket for sure!!
And you, have you ever sewn a jacket ? I would love to see your projects!
I think I took enough room on we sew retro, so
if you want more informations and pictures, come on my blog!
