I came home last night from a very long day at work and a fairly long after- work-emergency-office happy hour. Wanting to get a jump start on the weekend sewing, I decided to cut out the BWOF 5-2007-104 jacket. Why the jacket over the pants? Nancywin offered to send me instructions on how to add a fly to my Anthropologie knock off pants and I wanted to think through a pocket addition before the muslin.
With BWOF I like to add the seam allowance after tracing the pattern by marking my fabric. Last night I forgot to add 1.5 inches to the hem of the jacket front (on the right). doh.
The last time I did this I shortened the vest I was working on overall and I rather hated it because it was too short. In theory, this is a short jacket anyway. I have just enough fabric to retrace the front. So, ummm, I might. But, I might not. Yes, yes, had I done a muslin I may have avoided this. But, I didn’t. I feel some hem tape coming into this project.
