Inspired

My most recent jacket made me realise that this is the type of jacket I like best: fitted, definite waist shaping and special design lines. In my head the next one is getting shape. For the moment that is what it is, I’m not yet drawing the pattern, but hope to do that once the current (smaller) projects are done. I have learned that it best for me to work at one garment at a time, but have broken that “rule” and am working on a pair of trousers, a blouse and a bra. I really have to finish those first.
I’ll leave you with some screenshots of my inspiration.

Very interesting seam lines. It will be lovely. Will it be blue?

Sigrid said...

No Bunny, right now I'm thinking of using a black/white fabric in a linen/cotton combination I have in my stash.

Black and white is so in right now. what pattern are you using?

Sigrid said...

Becki-c: the pattern from my recent jacket will probably serve as the starting point, that was a combination of a Vogue and a BurdaStyle pattern with the designlines added.

Very nice, Sigrid! Like you, I know that my most flattering jacket is a more fitted one and I also love interesting design lines! I look forward to seeing your interpretation of this!
