Soduko Contest: Simplicity 2309
There’s been a change of plans. My first make for this contest was McCalls 7093. I love this top, but when I put it with my Butterick 6326, it’s a waste of a high waist. See:
These are two great pieces, they just don’t work together. So, I’m throwing McCalls 7093 off the Soduko board. In its place, I’m putting my TNT jacket pattern, Simplicity 2309.
I used some wool tweed that I had in my stash and cut a size 8–there’s a lot of ease in this pattern. I made two alterations: I sewed the sleeves in flat and I omitted the raw edges on the flounce by sewing the two layers together.
Here’s a close-up of the tweed:
I love the collar and and the flounce on this jacket.
And more importantly, this jacket works better with its two Soduko pairings. Now, just in case you are wondering how it is that I’m able to sew up these fabulous garments, I’ll tell you my secret. It’s with the help of my fabulous sewing assistant, Louise.
Isn’t that a hoot?? She sits like this when I sew. I can’t believe I haven’t fallen off the chair. Maybe she wants to learn to sew????
