I was just wondering if anyone has done this jacket following those patterns? I'd like to ask some questions!

I remember it was mentioned once a long time ago, maybe in the sewing thread? I wanted to make it, but I got all confused and stuff when i was making it...

that was a year or more ago though. i should try again, I love that jacket, it's really cool. i love the showcase of all the different versions... inspiring

I actually made this for my entrance portfolio for university. I think it turned out quite well and I wear it occasionally. I have more pictures at home but here is the side view



Ask me anything!

Thanks everyone! It wasn't as hard as it looks, the really frustrating thing was figuring out the instructions. It only ended up taking me about 25 hours.

I wanna see more view!!! Honestly, this was the only pattern from all of those which seemed doable and pretty and wearable. I mean, the John Galliano corsage? All the stuff one needs for a proper corsage.... *phew*.

What kind of fabric was it? It looks like satin... pretty.

Hey guys! Thank you! Sorry I completely forgot about this thread! Here are some more pictures. Yes, it was a heavy satin. I had started using a window pane wool at first and it looked terrible so I changed it about halfway through.
