History of the jacket

First of all, I wanted to thank you all for your excitement and interest in our sew-along. Your positivity had made us more confident in our plans :-)

Before the sew-along begins and you all prepare your fabric and pattern, Leisa and I decided to entertain you with some useful information which might be useful during the course of the sew-along.

I'd like to start with a little bit of history. Even if I read all the of the books and articles in the world, I wouldn't  be able to better tell the story of the jacket as those who are at the source of this classical garment. Enjoy!



Please don't be shy and join our Flickr group. Some photos of the fabrics and ideas for the jacket are popping-up (mostly mine ahem..). You can also have a look at my Facebook page where I regularly post updates on my jacket-related finds.

Next, Leisa is preparing a post about choosing the right fabric for the jacket. Stay tuned!

  3. Thanks, I know about this book ;) It can be complementary but our sew-along will be based on what we've learnt with our teacher, Susan. Excited to see what you'll come up with :)

  7. I only subscribed recently to your blog. May I say that I'm catching up progressively and love the contents and thought process you put behind every blog entry and this doesn't happen so often in the blogosphere. Thank you!

  10. Great (and really interesting) video! Best of all, they used one of my favourite words - frou-frou! Excited to see all the jackets and I may even give in and make a very light linen one for any special inside occasions that come up...!
