Conversational Threads

help finding article

Alexandra | Posted in General Discussion on

Threads is so useful I seem to always have at least one or two old issues laying around to flip through.  Recently, I saw, I think it was a ‘quick to make’ Japanese inspired, green linen jacket made of rectangles.  Please help me locate which magazine it is in as I haven’t a clue whether it is recent, which I suspect, or years old.  Index search didn’t turn up anything.  Thanks for any help in locating this article.  Oh and anyone make it up?  Please give your thoughts on the outcome.

    That jacket was in a recent issue: #137 page 59. I had some issues with this pattern but someone here posted pictures of a few she had made and they were really pretty. The size is rather small for me and I changed quite a number of the parameters - basically, I used the idea and made my own version.

    I am not keen on wearing items that seem to me to be "unfinished" and do not fit well. The acute angle of the sleeve/underarm is pretty bunchy (am speaking about the original pattern). Of course those things have to be expected of very simple designs.

    I would like to post a photo, have a new system here on the computer and having trouble posting photos but will give it a try later on. Someone here will be able to direct you to the relevant postings on this jacket.

      Thanks for the prompt response.  Yah, I found my copy.  It looks very much like Sewing Workshop's pattern.  The sleeves look a little small to me in the Threads article, in relationship to the whole jacket.  Did you find that?

        Yes, the sleeves look really small - and yes, it does look like a Sewing Workshop pattern, but the SW is a nicer fit and more finished.I did the paper trick with the pieces, just to see how they go, using cms instead of inches, and you know what? The sleeves were much too skinny. I may have misinterpreted the instructions, but don't think so.BTW, I just came back from Fabricland and met a woman who was carrying some absolutely gorgeous fabric around, and I admired it.....white linen with black circles on it....and she wasn't sure if she wanted it or not or whether it was on sale of 50% off $19.99. Of course I had to keep track of her while she shopped! Darn, she took it and it was on sale. I met her at the door and told her that it's a good thing she held onto it because if she had put it down, I would have had to, just had to, pick it up! We had a good laugh over 2.5m at half off.
