Tah Dah! The Origami shirt is complete – except for I maybe don’t like the way the cuff puckers up because I was so dumb I put elastic on the sleeve to gather it. So I’m probably going to cut the cuff off and put on another one. I will like it better. That’s work for tomorrow afternoon.
Also I am putting pictures here of a jacket made using a Jalie pattern – if you haven’t looked at Jalie please do. Her patterns are exquisite and she has many to choose from. You are also supporting a woman in a small business and every size comes in the envelope for you to trace over and use. This jacket has pleats from the shoulders to the waist which gives it such a great shape. Jersey was recommended and I used ponte. Next time it will be a jersey knit which is lighter and stretches more. This jacket is warm so it’s great for winter wear if you’re not in a hot office or something. It also makes a great throw on jacket for going shopping.
It was also quite easy to put together. The worst part was making sure the pleats on the jacket were the same size. No biggy with a marking pen!
