knock-off jacket (3)

English Nederlands

Just a quick post to show a few pictures of the almost finished jacket. Quite a time-consuming project I can tell you. Buttonholes and belt left to be done, and attaching the sleeve lining. Though the RTW jacket I'm copying has no lining, I did feel it was a bit neater to add this. I added the lining to waist height. I'll make more detailed pictures of this jacket when DD is wearing it and from the inside this weekend.

Even een snel berichtje om een paar foto's te laten zien van het jasje dat nu bijna af is. Het is nogal een tijdrovend project kan ik je vertellen. Knoopsgaten nog en de riem die erbij moet, en de voering van de mouwen moet nog vastgezet. Het originele jasje dat ik namaak heeft geen voering, maar ik vind het mooier als dat er wel in zit. Ik heb het tot de taille gedaan. Dit weekend zal ik foto's maken van m'n dochter met het jasje en van de binnenkant.


  1. Wow Sigrid it's looking great, I just flicked down a few posts to remind myself what the original designer jacket looked like and it's pretty much identical! Great job finding a close pattern and then adding those designer touches.

  2. That is looking so nice. Your daughter must be so grateful to have a mum that spends so much time making things for her.

  3. Wow! So well done, your topstitching is perfect!

  4. Your topstitching makes me swoooon!

    And it inspires me to tackle a meatier project after I've finished my many SWAP garments and fill my empty closet.
