Jalie 2680 – Finished

Finally!!!  This has seemed like the never ending coat project!  I put the final touches on it this morning.   Here are the dressform shots:

And on me:


Overall, I’m super pleased!!  This pattern went together perfectly and I used the threads tutorial to bag the lining.  I was worried about sewing the buttonholes, but after some experimentation, I felt confident that it would work.

I highly recommend this pattern…

In the meantime, I’ve been back in stuffed animal land.  I get a ridiculous amount of joy out of sewing stuffed animals…and I have a new niece who is about to be born so it seemed like a good reason to sew one!  Last night, I quickly worked on this one from Kwik Sew..


It’s made from Kwik Sew 2791 …, which I originally bought for the blanket with the bear head attached.  The bear is ok…but he’s not quite the kind of cute that I was going for.

I have an old Mccalls pattern that I picked up from goodwill or somewhere that has a bear in it, but it just seemed fussy and difficult, so I went out today and bought Kwik Sew 3246.

We’ll see how it goes…I was going to start it later today.

Happy Sewing!

    It looks really nice on you! (great colour!)

  3. Your jacket is lovely – the colour of the outer fabric and the lining is great! So cute that you are sewing up a storm for the new baby!

  4. Well done! It looks gorgeous. I’m curious, did your softshell have a fuzzy lining already? Or was it flat and smooth? Mine is fuzzy, so I think I’m going to let that be the inside, rather than try to line it. Or would you suggest a lining in the sleeves for ease of putting on/taking off now that you’ve finished yours?

    • Hi Gwen, sorry, just seeing this now! The inside of mine was fuzzy and it really needs a lining to go on smoothly. I also used this fabric for a a short jalie jacket (sorry the number eludes me right now, but it’s on the blog just a few posts back.). I’m okay with that being unlined because it’s just a casual jacket, but for this longer one, I knew that I wanted to wear it for work and would prefer it lined.
