Jalie 2795

Y’all, out of all the things I’ve ever made, this might be my favorite! Last year, I bought a bolt (11 yards total) of this wool blend sweater fleece from fabricline.com (unfortunately they just posted that they are going out of business–this broke my heart because they were AMAZING to work with!) Since that purchase, I have been sewing all kinds of things out of this beautiful fabric. This weekend, I decided to bring out Jalie 2795 and actually try the hood.

For the grey contrast panels on the sides and the sleeves, I used felted, charcoal wool. I got this wool from a men’s sweater that I bought at the Goodwill and then felted in my washing machine. The cuffs, waistband, and inner collar were made out of some scraps of Polartec PowderDry that I had in my stash.

I took some pictures at around 2PM today, but winter light has come to Boonetowne, so the color is not great. Additionally, we’ve got multiple wildfires burning in western North Carolina, so the smoke is making the sky a bit bleak. All of this is to say, my photos are not of the highest quality! 😦

I had to use a leather needle to manage the thickness of the sweater-knit and felted wool. I broke a few needles before figuring this out, but it was totally worth it.

This jacket is so warm and cozy, I might never take it off!!

  1. This is cool! I love how you used various fabrics to make it work!

  2. I really like the combo of solid panels with the tweedy knit. It makes a great looking jacket that also looks like it would be so warm and cozy to wear.
