Dressmaking, Handmade Wardrobe

Minerva Crafts Blog: Lurex Coating Coco Jacket

I’m proud to say I’m working with Minerva Crafts and my makes will be found every month over on their Blog.  I’m an advocate of fabric shopping online, this might feel counterintuitive to some, but when I dream up a project I am quite set on what type, colour and weight of fabric I’m looking for (check my guide to choosing fabric to help translate the terminology) . With such strict parametres, it’s easier to search online rather then rummage in shops. Minerva Crafts have a huge, I mean really huge, range and choice of fabric so i’m looking forward to showing you some great projects over the coming months. The first project went live today and I wanted to give you a sneak peek.

Being part of the Minerva Craft Blog Team has encouraged me to use new fabrics and this fabric made me step out of my comfort zone, but it fits in perfectly with my wardrobe. It has stripes, shades of blue, flecks of gold and is nothing like I’ve seen on the high street.

Pattern: Sew Over It Coco Jacket
Fabric: Lurex Coating Fabric
Notions: Interfacing to match the weight of your fabric for the front two panels, more if you chose a light weight fabric.
Modifications: None. Cut straight from the pattern
Fit: About an inch too short on me, but I’m quite tall (5’7”)
Difficulty: Advanced beginner. Great choice for a first time jacket, there are no fastenings.
Watch out for: Turning the jacket inside out, I used the Sew Over It Chloe Coat Class as a refresher.
Make Again?: Definitely, in a Navy/ Black Wool for smarter occasions or a brilliant geometric jacquared fabric.

Happy making
