Estelle autumn jacket tutorial
- 2m x 140cm of fabric Pow foot of hen, 3 meters at 45 €
- 3.5 m of bias
- A little fall in lining
- A box ofpins
- 1 wire coil matching your fabric
- A meter of seamstress
- A pair of Fiskars scissors
- A sewing machine
- The boss of your favorite jacket
(for example the patron of the Claudie jacket of the Scammit workshop in 36 but too big for me. So I made a hollow fold on the back).
- Tissue paper
- A ruler
- A pencil
1. Adjust the 2 parts of the boss at the side of the armholes and position them on tissue paper.
Discallate so that the 2 parts only make one.
2. Fold your fabric in two places against the place and position your new back and front pattern linked to the fabric fold.
3. pin, then with a tailor of tailor draw a circle arc as in the photo below. Then cut.
4. Be careful to create a detection at the collar level, as indicated in the photo below.
5. Cut the 2 rounds, being careful to mark the bearings well thanks to your original boss.
6. To create a parment, to decal the top (halfway up the armholes) of the boss that you have just designed. There must be 2 sides of the front and 1 back.
See photo below.
7. Cut out the back and in front of the back and in front of the back facing once in the fold and the facing facing, twice.
Assemble the jacket
8. Sew the place against the two sides at the shoulder level. Open the seams with an iron.
9. Sew the 2 sides of the sleeves.
10. Assemble the sleeves to the flavor of the jacket, taking care to follow the instructions and notches of your original boss.
Flatten the seams of the armholes outside.
11. Assemble the shoulders of the Parmenture then open the seams with an iron. Make a small hem of cleanliness on the bottom in front and back of the Parmenture.
12. Assemble the jacket and the parmenting together by pinning in the collar place against the place. Then sew the pass.
Return the Parmentation and form the collar with an iron.
13. Assemble the parment to the shoulders of the jacket with a small holding seam and sew an invisible support point on the tip of each side of the parment with the jacket.
Make the finishes
14. pin your bias by starting it with a small fold at the level of your parmentation.
15. Go all around the jacket with the edge of the second parment. Be careful when you arrive at a right angle, you must form a small diagonal with your bias (see the photo) and maintain it with a pin or a pliers. Then resume the seam of your bias a little further.
16. Regarding the sleeves, apply a piece of biases to hide the seam on the side (more aesthetic if you have to roll up your sleeves).
17. Make an invisible hem by hand on the edge of your sleeves.
Your jacket is over!
To wear alone, under a cape, under a trench ...
