Le Smoking Jacket

February 7, 2014

Thanks to a sew along (Fearless February over at I finally made my hubby Le Smoking Jacket in a brocade (see below)!

It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be but is definitely not for beginners as the cutting/piecing instructions are only so-so. I even put the black contrasting ends in the tie like he wanted! It definitely made him happy. He put it right on and is now walking around the house in it. More details on my blog:Cuttlefish Corner

Let me know what you think!

  1. OMG that turned out so good! I love the bright brocade, and I’m glad you got your man to model it. I got tired of waiting around for my husband to model a jacket I made for him, but I gave up and put it on the dressform. Yours turned out great, and the fit is excellent!
