I was inspired to do this jacket after watching Janet Pray make a women's denim jacket in this Craftsy class. She shows step-by-step how to make her jacket pattern. She shows lots of tips and does teach how to sew faster and better. I did flat fell some seams, even though she serges all.
I used my DressMaster machine to sew this and do the topstitching. The American made White machines with friction drive do incredible straight stitches. Plus they will sew through anything, even several layers of denim.
I was warned by a reader about the sizing. Yes, it is big in the shoulders, so I might make it again after adjusting the shoulders. Since the denim was $1.50 per yard on closeout at Walmart, I made this jacket inexpensively.
I enjoyed the topstitching so much I am planning on making another jacket with the same pattern, but with beige denim, adjusted shoulders, and only 1" added to the sleeves.
I also plan on using my new Necchi Supernova Ultra BF that followed me home for $4.50.
Thanks for stopping.
