The Cotton Tweed Jacket

お久しぶりです!でも新作を作っていたと言う訳ではなく・・・。今月は何もアップしていなかったので月が変わる前にと思いまして、今回は綿のツイードジャケットです。実はこれ、去年の春に作ったものです。なぜ今頃?というのは、下に履くスカートを作ろうと思っている内にとうとう着る時期を逃してしまったのです。忘れかけてたジャケットですが、去年の夏に作った白のバルーンスカートと合わせて今ようやく着られるようになりました。フリンジはバイアスの生地を縫い付けてほどいています。先日ジャケット用に買ったエレガンスのリボンツイードも白と紺なので紺色のスカートも作ろうと思います。そのうちに。

Hi hi there! It's been a while since my last post. In the meantime I haven't sewn any garments for myself. But here is a forgotten cotton tweed jacket I made last spring. Why now? I was gonna make a skirt so that I could put it on with the jacket but I could't make it. After all, I missed the chance to wear it. Now I have a white bubble skirt I made last summer and it just perfectly goes with the jacket! I used bias cut strips out of fabric for the fringe trim.
Speaking of tweed, the other day I bought Elegance ribbon tweed to make a jacket. It's quite expensive but super pretty. How could I resist? This one is also white x navy so I'm gonna have to make a navy skirt for these jackets.




ところで最近思う事があります。それはブログが何となくマンネリ気味な事。気分転換に何かしようと考えたのは、テンプレートを変える、ブログを引っ越す、何かに挑戦する、などなど。よく見かける型紙プレゼントもアリだけど、市販の型紙なんて持ってないし・・・。なら型紙を作ってあげるプレゼントなんてどうなんだろう。色々考えてると問題も出てきたりで思い切れない。結果何も決まらず今はこのままずるずる行く感じです。何かモヤモヤする・・・。

  1. I love watching your handmade clothes SO MUCH! They always are utterly perfect! Have you watched a BBC show "The Great British Sewing Bee"? It so much fun! Check it out on Youtube :) I'm sure you'd win such a competition in your country!

    1. Hi Julia! I watched the TV show but haven't watched last episode yet. So don't tell me who is the winner! I think that would be... We don't have such a great sewing TV show in Japan. What a shame!!

    1. 一年前に作ったからその頃はもう少しゆとりがあったかもね~。はは。バイアスだと糸が交差するからフリンジにボリュームが出る気がします。フリンジのツイードバッグってのもいいかもね。

  4. 素敵なジャケットですね。私もツイードが大好きです。やっぱりツイードはフリンジが一番!全体のバランスもとてもいいですね。今の時期とても重宝しそうです。

    1. 私は背が低いのでジャケット丈はいつも短めです。それだけで全体のバランスが取れたりしちゃうかもね。

    1. Yes, of course I'm alive! I've been away from blogging for a while because I've got stuff to do and I only made a simple skirt this summer. I'm sorry that I never mentioned about it. Hopefully I'll be back here anytime soon :)

  14. Hi Jeyco, love your tweed jacket and skirt! You sew immaculately!
    I also wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for sharing information about dart manipulation under your Pattern Making section. I have drafted my basic bodice following the instructions in Mrs Style Book, which uses the Bunka method. But I got stuck trying to draft the bodice for a dress that I wanted to sew because I couldn't understand the dart manipulation. After seeing your explanation, everything is clear now. I can carry on and draft my dress bodice now. It's a very cute pattern and I am so HAPPY that I can draft it now, so thank you again!
    Hope you have time to sew for yourself soon!
