My wild child jacket! – McCall 6360

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! :D

Thanks for reading!

  • Super awesome jacket! The red suede really pops! Is it real suede or ultra-suede?

  • Thanks Carolyn! Oh I don’t know the exact english term for it . In France it is “suédine”, a false suede (less expensive, but mostly, not from a dead animal…). I made some research, I don’t think it’s super suede. I don’t really know :S
