2 versions so different

A review of Closet Core Patterns Sienna Maker Jacket

Reviewed by Eliza-sew-little on 16th October, 2022

Bought pattern for short jacket but when I saw this ready quilted and  lined fabric I knew I wanted a long version. I lengthened it by 10” and didn’t add the extra front pocket. I made size according to my measurements with usual body adjustments. I lengthened the body tapering out but could perhaps have had more width.

I bound all the inner seams. It took ages! And I needed to buy more thread twice! I omitted the interfacing in the collar as this is bulky fabric. I also understitched the facing from belt downwards to help it lie flat and did not top stitch it down as the visible line of stitching broke up the onion pattern on the quilting.

Its fab. I enjoyed making it and love wearing it. What more could you ask for?

the only part I’m uncertain about is the belt which needs threading through every time. If that gets too annoying I’ll add some poppers.

But so far it’s been fine.
