The Look of Houndstooth

5:00 PM

Love these looks!

Project Details

Pattern: New Look 6619
Body - 100% woven cotton houndstooth
Lining - 100% polyester dull satin
Notions: Five 1" buttons and one large snap

Description: Misses lined jacket with collar and sleeve variations; size 8 - 18. I did View A, with the asymmetrical shawl collar and full length sleeves in my normal size 16. This pattern was very well written which provided an easy to sew garment. Instead of side seams, the jacket has side panels. This is another pattern were the upper collar is slightly larger than the under collar ... again, it attached perfectly. The only problem I encountered was through my own lack of attention to detail. On the under collar, I applied the interfacing to the right side of the fabric instead of the wrong side. I ended up spending half an hour peeling that off. I didn't have to make any alterations or modifications, I sewed straight from the directions. I think I will enjoy wearing this jacket with skirts, pants or even jeans. I recommend this one to anyone that wants to add something with a little flair to their wardrobe. Will I sew this again? Probably not since this is such a trendy piece. Plus, I plan on doing a coat with a similar style collar.
