Jackets and Coats

 Marcy Tilton Vogue 8779

 Marcy Tilton OOP jacket pattern from linen we use in the bakery to make the lining for our bread baskets
Marcy Tilton Vogue 8709  I had fun with this one.  Started with muslin, layers three sheer fabrics on top then silk screened.
For some insane reason I love working with vintage men's jackets.  They are a pain in the butt because they are constructed so well it's time consuming to break them down into a new design.  This one stayed pretty much intact, a little nipping at the waist and some embellishment.

  5. Where do you find your black and burgundy jacket fabrics? The burgundy looks a lot like the black metal.
    I would love some information about these fabrics.

    1. I get most of my fabrics from Marcy Tilton online, Hart’s Fabrics in Santa Cruz (they are also online), Fabrix in San Francisco and while traveling.
