Canvas Jacket

I finished a wearable toile of the Canvas Jacket. Here it is with about an hour to deal with of threads hanging off it and waiting for fray check to stabilise the button holes.

I returned to sewing clothes about a year ago. One of my aims is to improve the fit and finish of my clothes.

The pattern came in black and white The numerous sizes marked on the PDF print that I ordered from The Fold Line made it difficult to identify many of the markings including darts, pleats and button placement. I could try to count or do my own thing.

The pattern identifies the right (as opposed to left) side by which way one looks at the garment rather than by how the wearer sees it.

I watched the video sew-along on the Wardrobe by Me website. I also picked up tips from another maker and I’m sorry I can’t now identify her on line.

I thought the pockets would be very thick if made as instructed. After attaching the bands, I turned them out, stitched wrong sides to the pocket and turned them back. This method is used in lots of patterns. It makes identification of the line to turn under and stitch around to attach the pocket to the garment very easy.

I made the US Size 10 and knew I would find the waist a little snug. I did and I opened and bound the bottom six inches of each side seam.

I used a patterned cotton lawn for the inner yoke, under collar and cuffs.

I made the collar following the other maker. In the end, it might be the same as recommended in the pattern, which I couldn’t follow, but I don’t think so. I used it for the cuffs too. I found that ending up securing and top stitching on the right side gave me more control over the finished appearance. I liked her way of folding edges and pushing them into corners in order to define these. I don’t know if that would work on thicker fabrics.

I bound the edges of the pocket bands, the front facings, the sleeve seams and the hem using a Hong Kong finish.

The following are adjustments required if/for when I make the jacket again:

Grade out waist as the rest of the jacket is a good fit.

Possibly adjust the bust darts.

Possibly shorten the sleeves slightly.

Bind sleeve to shoulder seams so as to be able to catch the finished edge in the top stitching. I left this stitching off the toile.

Self make binding to match the inner yoke, under collar and cuffs.

The following are general learning points from this make:

Cut and top stitch patch pockets super accurately. Practise with the fabric.

Centre the needle and re-set the stitch length each time It is adjusted for top stitching etc

Make a note of settings used for edge and top stitching so as to be consistent.

Check all pieces end up in the garment right side out. (I had a collar issue.)

Resist using the thread cutter if it will be neater to leave longer ends and catch them in by hand.

Think more about the corners of bound pieces.

I learned a great deal about top stitching. There is a good deal of thread, foot, stitch length changing. The pattern specifies special thread but I also discovered dedicated top stitch needles with larger eyes. I made a note of settings used when edge and top stitching so as to be consistent. Two spools of top stitching thread are required for this make.

In writing this, I find how difficult it is to describe in English clearly what I did and how difficult it is to find online sites used.
It's a good design but not sure whether a beginner would "get" some of the moves.
