Corduroy Bear & NL 6270
New Look 6270: Dress, Accessories, Coat/Jacket & Formalwear.
I thought this simple pattern would work well with the 6 wale corduroy I'd purchased from Joann's a few weeks ago. Hoping that it would allow the wales of the fabric to balance the style of the jacket (or keep me from looking like Corduroy Bear..lol). I'm working up Version E, which has side darts ( or are they bust darts... can never get that right ) and neck facing... simple enough right.
The body of the jacket went together effortlessly, with the plan of putting a lining in as well. Although the jacket doesn't have front facings, I'd plan to fold over the fronts of the jacket and attach the lining to that. Also, I added faux welt pockets.
There are 2 problems that I am having with this jacket, one is the neckline, I attached the neck facing and serged to the neckline of the jacket. Upon trying it on I noticed that the neckline sits away from my neck... umm what is that all about.
Secondly, it appears that the back is several shades lighter than the front.... umm is it just me... Is there some scientific formula for cutting out corduroy?
I will leave you with a parting shot of my latest embroidery design.... I am addicted to shoe designs... I guess it keeps me from physically shoe shopping...lol
