Winter Sunshine Finished

I'm finished with the first Jacket of the Month going on at Stitchers Guild.  Yay!  The fabric is wool crepe, in a color called "Winter Sunshine", from GorgeousFabrics.  I liked the color's name, so decided to name my jacket the same.   The pattern is an OOP, M 5711.  I love this pattern.  It has great details.



I've posted previously about the details and construction of this jacket.  It went together beautifully.  I will make it again.  Sometime.

Here's some photos.







All it needs is a good press, which it will get when I'm in the mood.  Or, I'll send it out.   Now, on to #2!

Aah I have waited 2 days to see this coat - I was on holiday with a place which could only get dial up Internet and it refused to download the photos - it is every bit as beautiful as I imagined and I am totally transfixed by how puckerless those darts are. They just melt into thin air. Amazing. This is a very beautiful piece of work all over.

Clio said...

How cute! What a great color!

Little Hunting Creek said...

I love your coat - so pretty!

The Slapdash Sewist said...

Gorgeous! It is winter sunshine! I have that pattern but then wondered whether I'd like the dropped shoulder. Any thoughts on the way it looks or wears?

Sherry said...

Love this design, and such a great colour too! It looks beautifully made.

Brenda said...

Gwen, your jacket is absolutely gorgeous!!! Don't know yet what to make from my piece of the Winter Sunshine but it is such a "happy" color. Just gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing.

Cennetta said...

OMG! Miss Gwen, This coat is perfection. I love it. Great coat; the lines are clean and very stylish. I've had this pattern in my collection for over a year. Your version out shines the coat of the pattern envelope. Beautiful.

angie.a said...

The yellow is so beautiful and a much-needed sunny site today! :) Gorgeous coat.

SewBarbie said...

That is soooo cute!

JuliaR said...

Hey Gwen, I don't get out much to other sewing blogs, but I got your latest comment at mine, so here I am! I am so glad your husband's TIA turned out better than it could have. What a relief.

I made this jacket too!

I haven't worn it much because it seemed just a tiny bit snug (although, I have lost a few pounds since then). Also, the neck is very open, so I would want to wear a big scarf to fill in the gap, depending on how cold it was out. But I liked the concept enough that I am thinking of making it again.

Leslie V said...

Wow!! this is nice. Love your color choice. the back is fantastic!!
