That´s Sew Cinematic: Hudsucker Proxy
I can’t believe it’s June already, and I haven’t shown you any of my Sew Cinematic creations! Just a little recap, my inspiration for this sew-along looks a little something like this:
So far, I have made the cropped jacket from Hudsucker Proxy and the shirt and trousers from The Last Time I Saw Paris. All items will get a review of their own, and I will start with the jacket. First of all I’ll tell you that I absolutely love the jacket, and I’ve worn it tons since I made it!
I have yet to find a good photo of the bolero that inspired the jacket, so you’ll just have to watch the movie to see where my inspiration came from. Jennifer Jason Leigh does a fabulous Katharine Hepburn interpretation in this movie, and the wardrobe is not holding her back!
BurdaStyle 10-2010-113 Cropped jacket
Pattern size: 36-44
Avaliability: BurdaStyle.com or BurdaStyle Magazine 10-2010
Pattern type: Cropped jacket with large back pleat.
Rating: Highly recommend!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I think the instructions were fairly easy. It´s always a little tricky to understand what they want you to do with the lining, but I guess I got it right, somehow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really love the length of this jacket, combined with the slightly vintage feel of the pleat in the back.
Fabric Used: I used a thrifted cotton twill.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I needed a jacket with long sleeves, so I lengthened the 3/4 sleeves to adjust it to my need.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? As this is quite a specific style, I might not make it again, but I would absolutely recommend it to others!
Conclusion: A fairly easy and very well-designed jacket pattern which resulted in a jacket that filled a gap in my wardrobe!
I love this jacket! The back pleat is my favorite part. Love the shape.
Looks like a super versatile design. I especially like the pleat in the back.
Oh, I love it!!!
You look so glamorous! And hurray for filling wardrobe gaps.
Hahaha I like that movie. And she does wear some pretty sweet outfits in it. Good job!
Such a beautiful jacket! I would have imagined this jacket was boxy based on the pattern drawing, but yours looks very flattering and feminine. Lovely!
Great, versatile jacket. The back pleat is a lovely detail. What a great thrifted fabric find. x
Brilliant jacket ! It looks the perfect cover up & I think I too am swooning for the back pleat. It’s a great shape on you – really suits you – how great that it’s so practical yet stylish!
This cropped jacket is just perfect! It turned out beautifully! Love the back pleat 🙂
I just love this on you! I’ve been eyeing this pattern — probably not a great choice for my shape but such great details, the length, the back, etc. Modern but retro (and versatile to boot!), just lovely.
So lovely, both the shape and colour look great on you!
I love your jacket, It looks fantastic!
