I have officially fallen behind in blogging. I’ve now made everything that I planned to make for the fall, but have only managed to blog the cardigan. It’s not because I haven’t made some good stuff, though. This jacket is the pièce de résistance of my fall sewing collection. It may also be my all-time favorite make.
I went out of my comfort zone with this rose gold faux leather jacket. Metallic jackets are having a moment, and I’ve made this pattern before, but as much as I wanted it to work, this was not a successful pairing.
Guess what? I made a muslin! For Christmas, my boyfriend gave me Colette’s Anise jacket pattern and a promise to buy the necessary fabric and notions to make it. I wanted to make the most out of my present, so I made a muslin of the pattern. It looks just a little bit like a clown costume.
