Last week, Sew Over It released their brand new pattern to PDF Club members, the “Kimono Jacket” (now available to all). SOI have that knack of releasing the pattern that I really need, and this was no exception. The Kimono Jacket is the perfect layering piece, perfect for Spring and cool summer nights.
I had some Liberty Tana lawn in my stash, which is a beautiful drapey cotton, although this pattern works really well for all fabrics with a good bit of drape.
The pattern itself is a PDF, 32 pager, but super fast to sew. In fact, the taping of the pattern took longer than the sewing! Really easy to make up, with no challenges. I made the medium which was listed as a 12-14, but it is quite large in a cotton fabric. A chiffon or satin would add less bulk.
Really happy with how it turned out, and I know it’ll be a staple over the coming months. Another great pattern Sew Over IT, looking forward to more.
So, what’s next?
For my next sewing project I’ll be downloading the brand new release of the Colette Patterns Sorbetto top, which is their free PDF pattern. It promises a better fit and a longer length option which I’ll be making in a sheer bright pink crepe from Abakhan.
Next up will be not one, but TWO Chloe Coats from Sew Over It! I’ll be making a Spring/Summer version in a surprisingly good curtain fabric from Dunelm of all places. Plus, I’ll be making up the coat in a gorgeous camel melton wool from Fabric World ready for Autumn. Why not take advantage of an already-prepared PDF pattern eh?
Phew, that’s a while lotta sewing, but it’s all explained on my new You Tube Channel here.
Thanks for stopping by, ta ta for now.
