I made a Jean jacket!
Today, I am super excited to show you my jean jacket! Over the summer, I made a jean jacket, it is a very long process but I really enjoy the process.
At the beginning of the summer, I was looking for a challenging project to do over the summer, at first, I wanted to make a pair of jeans. The problem was that I never wear jeans and I did not find a pattern that would fit me. So I decided to give up on the jean idea, but a few days later, I was on Jalie’s website and saw a very old jean jacket sewing pattern! I immediately wanted to make a jean jacket!
Making this jacket was so much fun, it was challenging and super relaxing to sew because I would sew a bit every time and I had to be precise with the top stitching. I love to make everything perfect and so, in this project, I took my time. In total, I spent 20 hours to make this jacket. This includes assembling the PDF, tracing the patterns, cutting the fabric…
Here are the details:
I made size Q, it is one size bigger than my actual size but I am happy it is quite big like this, I will be able to wear it for a very long time. 😁
For this jacket I used:
- The Jalie 2320
- Jeans thread bought at Club Tissus
- Strech italien denim bought at Club Tissus
- Jean buttons also bought at Club Tissus
