Sewn Magazine - Simplicity 8890



So do you get emails that you have to read a few times to let it sink in?  Well, that was me in mid-April when I received an email from Michelle of Sewn Magazine






Be part of July/August Sewn Magazine - me? Heck yes, I want to.  Michelle has done an amazing job with the magazine and I look forward to each issue.  Michelle state the colors for the garment....red, white and blue.  I got to thinking about it and I had just ordered this Navy polka dot stretch twill from Mood Fabrics, that would work perfectly for the theme.


Now to plan the rest and go with the red-white-blue theme.  I knew it needed to be a jacket and I had been wanting to make Mimi G's Simplicity 8890.  My first thought was to add red on the jacket.  The more I thought about it the more I didn't want to have a jacket that had red on it to limit what I could wear it with. 



After emailing Julie Starr and asking her expert advice on Petersham Ribbon, which Julie mailed me some samples from her stash so I could play!  Sewing friends are the best.  I decided to use the Petersham on the bottom of the flap.  I just wanted the flap to stand out and be seen on the jacket.




My red did play in on the lining of the flap, just a fun detail if the wind ever catches my flap.



One thing about this fabric, it is printed on, so that hampers the roll up of the cuff.  I used  the sleeve pattern to cut out a facing.  This worked very nicely to have a pretty cuff.



My usual adjustments with a Simplicity pattern - one inch to the body and two inches to the sleeve,


I love the details of a trench.... the flap, the collar and the epaulets.  All combined make a beautiful garments





Now to the red component, I used a red-white knit from Sewing Studio and my favorite
 Union St Tee.  The fabric came from Sewing Studio but is now sold out.


I went with the crew neck style, I wanted the shirt to show under the jacket and cut the binding on the bias.



I was so happy with the jacket and that it was finished a week before the deadline for submission.  I had been out -of-town and had some family events.  The only glitch was my DSL camera broke, we went to buy a new one and it all worked out.  The day I was going to take photos, one daughter was at my house, I recruited her to help me and I wouldn't have to use my tripod and timer.





We went to a beautiful spot, a covered bridge about 20 minutes from my house.  The bridge is recently restored.  One year, it flooded and the water was actually as to the bridge.  Some brave community members went out and removed the outside boards so the water could run through the bridge.  This saved our precious covered bridge. I love going to this place, it is beautiful, historic and has a small creek for the kids to play.


I am so grateful for the Sewn Magazine experience and for my two new garments!


Disclosure - I receive a monthly fabric allowance from Mood Fabrics to make a garment.  This garment is blogged at Mood Sewciety Blog first and then I will blog here about this garment.

  6. We've been hearing a lot about fake news since the 2016 Presidential Election. It is a phrase that President Donald Trump uses in his tweets almost daily. Fake news has also been a problem for such social media as Facebook. As AI develops, can it be used to identify fake news articles? Latest Breaking news in Telugu

  8. It is news that dominates lives today. Business would almost come to a standstill and the cycle of loss and profits would play havoc had there been no market news to update businessmen and investors alike.
