SewStylish Fall Fashion Challenge 2013

Purple Jacket

Sep 30, 2013

I found this beautiful purple quilted fabric at my local independent fabric dealer and just had to make a light jacket.  The fabric is water-repellent is self-lined with a light fleece so it was a perfect selection for an unlined coat.  I eliminated the facing on the collar and simply turned up the seam allowance over the fleece to make a nice edge.  This worked well since the fabric itself had a lot of body.  The seams were all top-stitched which gave the outside seams some visual interest.  The buttonholes were made with a piece of self-fabric and I simply stitched a small rectangle the size of the button, and turned the extra piece inside, following it up with topstitching on the front of the buttonhole.  I love Neue Mode patterns and have found them online at www.sewingpatterns.com
