I have to agree with all of the previos comments. You work is superb. We are most critical of our own work. You deserve a pat on the back. Hugs, Joyce
That is simply superb! Master class! Will you go in competition of
British sewers in BBC? You're simply the best - and thank you for sharing - Maria
No way, Maria!
Just reading over the comments, I'd say they're impressed. Last jacket I made was around 1982, in the heydey of Stretch n Sew. Polyester jacket, pants, 8-gore skirt and sweater, plus three t's and blouses all to match or coordinate. (I'd probably be embarrassed to see them if they showed back up in my closet!)
Been there - done that!
I really like this. Your placement is perfection.
That is the best bit! I am really chuffed with it.
Lovely jacket. Love the design you chose.
One word - Gorgeous.
Wow, your jacket looks great. Beautiful embroidery. Nice work.
Excellent work Sue!! Love your embroidery and colours.
Beautiful! Very creative, hope you enjoy your new snazzy jacket.
Well done Sue, lovely design to.
Great job on the placement and the colour is simply divine! Love Chris
Love the color and it looks fabulous.
I think 1st how very creative of you to recycle curtains into this lovely Jacket & 2cd I love where you have placed the designs. Quite striking against the black! Kudos to you Sue & bet it looks fab on you! ~hugs~
Adding a little decoration to the jacket really makes it special! Nice way the thread shaded the design. Well done!
Gorgeous work done!!!!So Stunning
Brilliant work Sue it looks fantastic. Reading below, was the sleeve made from one piece as one piece sleeves are a doddle to fit
Yes it was and no it wasn't!
This looks fantastic--I always have a problem understanding the front facing hem area to make it look as professional. When I get stuck it is a long time before I attempt again---Placement and design is perfect.
Very nice, my hats off to anyone that makes a jacket. Not my fave thing to do/Lillian
I think you have constructed the jacket beautifully. Is it for a special occasion?
No - just the challenge. The black cotton fabric was a pair of curtains from a jumble sale! (They were new though.)
looks great, love their designs and the way you used them. Sandy
Very Pretty!!! Love the designs
Love the design you picked. Looks great. Did you use a variegated thread? Your placement is perfect
No, the design has four colours and I used shades from light to dark. For the placement, I digitised a line to be the top of the facing pattern. I stitched that on the stabiliser and then basted the fabric piece in place for the embroidery. Second one was simply a mirror image.
Nice job...love the gradient of the colors, too! And Martine is right!
Hats off! The designs looks fantastic where they are - who cares it is called sleeve.
I just hope it takes the eye away from the botch I managed to make of setting the actual sleeves in!
I usually get one sleeve in flawlessly and in no time at all; but the second, that often has a mind of its own - or I might have become overconfident at the early success :)
I know exactly what you mean!
Peggy Sayers has a trick. She uses a strip of the interfacing from a tie. You stitch-stretch that across the cap of the sleeve and when released it pulls in to a nice smooth shape. Made a jacket with quilting cotton, so I need to try to reset some myself.
wow.. very nice job..
Beautiful! I love the gradient look of the purples in the design... nice work!
wow, it looks great :-))
Very nice colour and designs
WOWWWWWWWWW gotta love that purple and it all looks great to me???hugs
