1941 “Misses’ Mannish Jacket” (#1 of 3)

One of a three-jacket sewing project.  I did different pockets for each jacket, for practice.  This one got double-welt lower pockets and a single-welt upper pocket. 

I fell in love with the drawing and the classic lines of this jacket based on a man’s sportcoat. My sewing teacher challenged me to cut and sew three versions at once to build experience and confidence. So I did! A long haul, but I succeeded!

    Perfection is in the detailing of all three versions. I love sewing with vintage patterns, also. You have done a wonderful job!

    Hi!

    I just want to say that those 3 jackets look fantastic! I absolutely love the vintage look as well. I have a few vintage jackets and I find the fabric used on them makes the jackets far better looking then the ones used today. I know wool gabardine is also a good material but I was wondering if you know what type of fabrics they used in the 1940's that we could purchase today? I want to use those materials as opposed to the ones used today.

    Thanks

    Hi there,
    Just found your amazing jackets, whilst searching to find information on how to execute a double welt when there is a dart running into it, like this jacket.
    Is there an article or video on here. I have been searching everywhere.
    So wonderful to see your beautifully made tailored jackets. Total inspiration.
    Many thanks for sharing.
