|FOUR POINTS HOTEL DARLING HARBOUR|
I used a navy wool gabardine and lined with a spotty navy and red silk. (I paid $1 per metre). The pattern recommended coat fabric which I think meant a little thicker then what I used. This piece of wool was purchased in China back in 2001. I did a little short "navel" inspired jacket for my daughter a few years ago, and I think there is just enough for warm pants left.
I used Burda Magazine pattern from 1/2010 and cut a straight 42 with no alterations. I always get confused putting the collar/lapels together and have a "thing" about them, so I try to sew them early in the process to get them over and done with. (Really if they do not work then I can rid of the project) I have sort of decided to try to make a few more and in the hope that I will get better. The entire jacket was interfaced and I 'bagged ' the lining. Finding the right notions is always hard and I had to shortened the zips by pulling out the unwanted teeth with pliers and reattaching the zip stops, which can make the tapes look a bit messy.
