Last winter I’ve sewn this Jackie coat. I’m still in love with the result and as I was going through my pictures on my computer, I realised that I never even showed you my version of the Jackie pattern. To be honest, I think it’s because I was struggling at the time. Totally out of the blue, our girls both had to wear glasses and in the beginning I really couldn’t get used to the idea. I think that’s why in the end I never showed these pictures. I know it sounds stupid, but after one year and after changing their glasses to ‘real ones’ I finally got over the idea. Really: it took me this long. You will see that nowadays I will sometimes add the glasses on pictures, sometimes I don’t. That’s just because of reflection reasons, as I think Lisa and Nore look stinking cute with their new glasses now. :)
Back to the Jackie! I think (but I’m not sure at all) that the fabric is from Mon Depot. The teddy I bought at Bambiblauw. Although I never ever use purple, I loved the combination with the mint blue a lot. At Veritas I found the perfect matching buttons.
I will be sewing myself a similar coat in ‘Compagnie M. yellow’ soon, as this is the topic of my new sewing course this year: making myself a coat was on my ‘to-sew’ list for a long long time already and tomorrow evening I will finally trace the pattern. Hooray!
These pictures were taken with my mother’s phone at the zoo, as you can tell. But still I think it was worth showing you the result!
I hope no one got disappointed, since I got the impression from my preview post on Facebook that some of you were hoping for a Compagnie M. coat pattern. Well: maybe next year I can pick up this project again? I still get a lot of request for my own little coat pattern. But for this year I think it’s already too late to launch a winter coat pattern. Especially since I’m still focusing on the Louisa for women first. I can hardly believe it myself, but the pattern test is turning out very positive. My first women’s dress will be released soon in about 4 weeks time. :)
Oh looking at these pictures makes me very emotional. How small and stinking cute! This is Lisa about 2,5 years ago! My goodness: time flies…
