For sure I'm a sewaholic. And writing 3 posts in 2 days, and reading a lot of blogs makes me a bit of a blogaholic too I'm afraid. I saw that I reached my 200th post this weekend. Do I "talk" too much? Well, you don't have to listen if you don't want to, that's easy.
This week I want to make the BWOF jacket I wrote about earlier. I plan to post the steps I'm making with it.
First I made a muslin, no pictures of the first stage. And I made only made minor changes: added a center back seam to make a curve possible (the original was straight, cut on the fold) and took a bit out of the back waist and added a bit to the hip. On the pattern I added a bit of space to the bust area, which is just a little snug, which you can see on the muslin. Not surprising, I cut a size 40, while by bust measurement I'm a 42 in BWOF sizes. I don't want a lot of space, this is a jacket to be worn on its own, or open with a cami underneath.
The sleeve area in the back is perhaps not quite good, but I leave that till I basted the sleeve in the final garment, as fabric and interfacing will add more stability.
Like Nancy K said in her comment on BWOF patterns: the sleeve ease is perfect.
Tonight I cut the fabric. Isn't this a handy tool to add seam allowances?
Next step: interfacing.
