I have so many projects that I would like to get to, that it almost is overwhelming in a sense. Do you ever get overwhelmed by the things that you want to make? It's like I don't know what to get to first...I think I have narrowed my next project down to M6611, this jacket is really trending right now which I just found out is refered to as a "cascading jacket"...You learn something new everyday they say..
|You want to know the retail price of this jacket? 695.00 now that is cray-cray! Thank God for the ability to sew!|
Although, I secretly wish I had leather fabric, so that the sleeves and the peplum could be leather on the M6611. I think I just really need something leather, anything, hmmmm... the wheels are starting to turn lol.. However, back to M6611, I've read the reviews on this pattern and altered the pattern accordingly. I removed some of the ease from the sleeve cap; which I learned how to do reading "Gertie's new book"..Please and thank you! Gertie you rock girl in my book, pun intended HA! I also, added about 1 1/2 inches to the body pieces of the jacket for a little extra length, ahhh, the beauty in sewing!
I don't know, I'm just really feeling the itch to sew a jacket of some sorts, not necessarily a coat, or do any heavy tailoring, but a simple jacket. I enjoyed the process so much when I made my first jacket earlier this year. That I thought it would be great for a refresher to refine somethings if you will...Also, I would love to try my hand at making some type of fur jacket thing..You all know my love, obsession with leopard print. I just so happen to have about 2 1/2 yards of faux leopard print that I purchased from fabric.com last year. I really am loving this jacket too, decisions, decisions ijs...
I guess, I better get back to sewing! I hope to be done with M6611 this weekend, who am I kidding lol! Hopefully I can be done by next week, we shall see...As always, Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
