Denim Jacket M6172

Hi friends,

Today the big reveal!! My latest version of the M6172 jacket (version A), which is definitely not the last one!

You can find the details in the pattern alterations in this post. Fitting help was provided by my lovely friends Myriam and Jacqueline. You guys are truly terrific! For the construction I followed Pam Howard’s class on Modern jacket construction.

I made this jacket in stretchy denim from Globetex and finished it with  flat fell seams using Heather’s tutorial.

The result: I totally LOVE it!! I never though the outcome would be so neat and comfortable to wear.

 

For my next jacket I will probably only reduce the puffiness at the sleeve cap, that’s all!

Overall, making this jacket was great fun!

Have you ever made a jacket for yourself?
