Katherine Tilton Jacket

I am finishing up the last round of the "Tilton sisters" patterns before I start on the 3 new ones by Vogue. This jacket, Butterick 6106, was particularly fun.
B6106, Misses' Jacket

 I used pieces of tapestry, suede and decorator fabric from my stash.
The directions called for this jacket to be unlined but since the backs of my fabrics were so unattractive and scratchy I made a "boxy type lining" and tacked it to the inside. I really like the way some of these jacket pieces were put together, in some cases requiring sewing a straight edge to a slightly curved one. This allowed the jacket to have some fit and not just be straight up and down.
Looking forward to going to the Smithsonian Wearable Art show next weekend http://www.craft2wear.smithsonian.org/ .  Anybody out there going?

  4. Ooh, I love it, Peg! The fabrics are perfect together. Looks heaps better than the pattern envelope would have you think. (Glad I just ordered that one.) Nice idea to line it too.

  7. Oh, how fun!! I just picked this pattern up. It's not my usual choice but I love all the unusual piecing. Love that you took advantage of the piecing with the fabrics.
