One Thimble 17: Big Day Out Jacket

I just love blog tours! It is so nice to see the different perspective of different sewers on the same projects. The One Thimble Magazine* is a great way to bet to know different designers in one magazine. For me this was my first time sewing something from One Thimble. Although I have sewed a pattern that was part of a previous version from One Thimble (Orbis Sinny Harem Pants by Sofilantjes in One Thimble 13). In the newest One Thimble, issue 17 I sewed the Big Day Out Jacket by Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns.

The Big Day Out Jacket is a denim jacket. My version looks like a denim jacket but actually I sewed the jacket from french terry and sweat fabrics with a denim look. With this jacket you can go all out! You can add embellishments, use different types of fabrics or different colours. It really is a garment you can go all out!

I love the jacket! I have sewed an Ainslee Fox Boutique pattern before when I sewed the wedding dress for our eldest girl: the Azure Party Dress. These patterns are just perfect! The finishing is great and with these patterns you can go all the way for an over the top party outfit, however you can easily tone it down a bit (we like party outfits for regular wear) and use them for any type of outfit. Again I loved using my Coverlock, the stitching is just so nice and it perfectly finishes the jacket.

Fabric: The glitter fabric, if you can see which one it is, is a thick sweat fabric, which I bought at Cares Stoffen. The two types of denim looking fabrics are french terry. The fabric I used for the sleeves comes from Babarum, which visited us during our sewing weekend. The flower fabric is a cotton, this was a fabric from someone else, it was quite big as you will see another garment with this fabric soon. So I tried all different fabrics and it works great together.
