Starting from January 2015, Make A Garment A Month Challenge (MAGAM) is moving to a Facebook group. All of you are welcome to join us, just simply click on this link for more detail :)
And for this month, I will be making a plaid jacket based on Burdastyle pattern - wool blazer 10/2013#106 size 36 with following modifications,
- I am going to lengthen the jacket until the top of my knee
- Omit the front dart and change the back jacket from two pieces of patterns to one piece.
- Change the original pockets to inseam pockets
- And as the MAGAM January Theme is to try a new technique, instead of finishing the jacket with snap fastener I will use bound buttonholes
For the fabrics, I will be using 2.5 yards of plaid wool blend and 2.5 yards of silk satin in deep blue color for the jacket lining.
Here is the closer look of my two fabrics,
Now, I am working on my grey wool jacket to test the pattern. You can see the quick update on My Facebook Page
