Oh Kittens! I am so excited to be working on this one! I’ve been trying desperately hard to reduce stash, and this jacket is going to be a centerpiece of my fall/holiday dressy wardrobe. I’m making the muslin now, and I think I am going to pull out the couture stops on this one. I’m making it from a stupendous silk taffeta brocade I bought from my darling Kashi several years ago. I will underline it with organza and line it with silk charmeuse. I’m getting tired of the same-ol, KWIM? Time for a challenge, and this should present a good one!
What you may not be able to tell from the pattern envelope (I didn’t notice it until I got home and opened up the pattern) is that it has multi-cup sizes for A/B/C/D cups. Alright! The McCalls Pattern company has finally started to notice that people are shaped differently! Sound the trumpet and bang the drum! Simplicity’s been doing multi-cup sizes for several years, and the independents even longer. Yipee!
Anyway, I’m going to do the big fit on this, and I’ll show off what’s happening as I go along. Stay tuned…
