I’m back with an awesome jacket!

I know… It’s been ages… I was so overloaded with my day job that I couldn’t update my blog as much as I wanted. 

But the hectic 2012 has finished and I’m back with new projects :))

So, zillion years ago I’ve posted a text about my upcoming sewing project. I’m glad to say that I’ve finished it, wore it many times and already put it in the spring/fall shelf of my wardrobe ‘cause the winter is back, after long days of cold but sunny weather.

What’s on my sewing table…

I have even less time I can spare for my sewing passion this month. But I’m determined to keep up with my sewing life and blogging about it! :) 

jacket sewing your style

I’m dedicated to finish this jacket for this month. The pattern was published in Burda Style’s August 2012 issue with pattern no. 137. It can also be purchased from here: Shawl Collar Jacket

I really liked this collar style as it allows free movement when wearing a jacket for work. 

I’ve never made a shawl collar before and I really liked the way it looks on the model. We’ll see whether I’ll be able to pose like her when I finish the project :) Considering my 6 feet tall figure, I think I should shorten the waist part a bit.

As I cannot go for a fabric shopping, I have to use something from my fabric stash. So I decided to use this gray lightweight woven fabric with a satin facing that I’ve used for a blouse before. I just adore colorful facings! :)

Although the pattern looks stunning on the model, I suspect that part of is has to do with the tempting blue color of the fabric used. So my fairly modest gray fabric may not be able to show off as I much as I wanted. Thus, I’m thinking about putting a contrast color bias on the shawl collar. We’ll see how it’ll end up :)

Any Questions?

sewing tutorials watch and learn grasshopper blog

Congratulations! I haven’t seen many blogs that provide such thorough tutorials! Keep up the good work Sensei! By the way, when are you planning to sew and tell about a Chanel jacket? 

_____

Thanks for your comment :)

Let me clarify one thing first: I’m not a Sensei of anyone :) The “grasshopper” in the “Watch and Learn Grasshopper” page is actually myself who is a self-taught and very enthusiastic seamstress :)

I also think that I should sew a Chanel jacket these days, but I have couple of other sewing projects in mind before that. I guess I can include it on the to-do list for next month. In the meantime, please do watch the making of a Chanel jacket video I shared couple of weeks ago:

Peplum Jacket completed! I’m having a huge ego boost moment!

Peplum Jacket designer fashion design brown lining sew sewing style v8718 vogue

I’ve torn myself apart but finally finished it! Despite the few flaws in the lining, I managed to sew this jacket right :D

My sewing ego just boosted… Who’s gonna stop me now?! Would I be exaggerating a little if I aim New York Fashion Week for next year?…

This is what it takes to wear a Chanel jacket. Some may think that it does worth those ridiculous prices, huh? :)

Enjoying world’s biggest art museum with my pop art jacket

louvre müzesi popart ceket - kendin dik

While I was visiting one of the biggest art museums in the world, I wanted to have a fashionable outfit appropriate for the venue. Of course I first thought about wearing a high fashion gown, then I had a sinister feeling that I might overdo it and went for a pair of sneakers, jeans and my newly made pop art jacket instead;)

What do I do? I try to get the best out of life...How did it all start? One day I decided that it is time for me to stop paying for clothes so much and make them myself. But the problem was, I had never sewn before in my life! So, I started following my inner voice... and youtube records... Since then, I sew whenever I can and defy the zillion dollar fashion industry in my own way :))
