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:

Horse hair canvas for the front:

Sewn the first corner:

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

Next step will be pad stitching.

    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 🙂
