Marfy Jacket 1756 Part I

After finishing my contribution to the Sewing Indie Month, I now concentrate fully on the Marfy Jacket Sew Along. I am a bit behind, but that does not matter. Leisa reminded me that it is more important to take one’s time than to keep up with the sew along posts. This is sooo true. Thank you, Leisa!

As this project will take some time, I decided to post weekly udates. For detailed description of the single steps, please refer to Leisa’s Blog. She is giving so much information it would just be inappropiate for me to repeat it here.

So far I have cut my fabric and underlining. As underlining I use cotton batiste (that is my favourite besides silk organza).

Thread tracing all pieces:

Cutting out the back stay:

Sewn the first corner:

It is incredible how much stability is added due to the silk organza.

Next step will be pad stitching.

  1. Exciting – it’s looking good! And you’re absolutely right, it’s much better to take your own pace rather than try to keep up with the breakneck speed of the sewalong 🙂

    1. Hi Melanie,
      Thank you! Sometimes I need a reminder not to hurry, but the end result is always so much better.

  2. This is were you’ve hided in the last couple of months! I’m glad I found you and will sure be visiting more often. Now that I know where to look 😉

    1. Hi Andrea,
      welcome at my little sewing space. Yeah, I did not mention my blog, it is still quite of an experiment for me. We will see what will happen!
