Jacket nr 3 for me

I love sewing jackets. It is a bit of a more complicated sew and therefore always give a satisfing feel after finishing it. I have already sewed 2 jackets last year and here is the next one: the Charlie jacket from Jalie. My first jacket was the Frida Jacket from Fibre Mood, the second is the Billie jacket (woven fabric) from Petite StitcheryThis jacket took a while to get finished. I started cutting the fabric almost a year ago. But then we moved and the fabric and pattern pieces scattered through my new sewing room. Then when I started again I had lost one of the pattern pieces (I did not cut all pattern pieces apparently) and needed to trace one pattern piece again. Then I got motivated to finish the project and I did. It is going to be great for fall when it will start to get colder, great for layering!

The fabric was hard to photograph, as from a distance you cannot tell it has stripes and the colours blend. The fabric comes from Zonen09 and are petrol and ochre combined, my two favourite colours. I already used this fabric a while ago for the bands for this sweater.
It definitely takes time to sew the jacket, especially with those welt pockets. Every time I am a bit daunted by those welt pockets, but they turn out so nice.

Again, a Jalie pattern that didn’t disappoint. I did not have to alter the pattern in any way. And the bonus is that I can sew one for our daughters as well since the pattern starts at kids size 2 (european size 92) up until women’s size 22 (european size 52).
