    A Quilted Jacket for prototype

    I am always cold, miserably cold, when everyone else is comfortable. So decided to whip up a jacket to size the "real one" for Christmas. Haven't done garment sewing for a while and I used some of the stash to make this. I remembered to make sleeves longer than pattern, but will make the next ones even longer as well as the overall length, although I don't usually wear this top under it. This was made with strip sets and flip and sewed onto a foundation. I learned several things and hopefully the next one will be better.

    Very nice jacket. I made one that is similar a couple of years ago. I used a sweatshirt as my foundation. I took off the ribbing and cut the shirt apart and used those parts. I really enjoy my warm jacket almost year round.

    Great job! I've done lots of quilty jackets and wearable art and just love it! I often use the stitch and flip on a foundation fabric for my jackets because it makes them lighter and we dont' need a lot of warm clothes in the Houston climate. I do have a few that I chose to use a flannel base on then line with cotton, but most at attached to a foundation.

    It looks great - love the idea of the bargello on that. I've been wanting a bed jacket - I'm an incurable read-in-bed girl- so you've inspired me to consider making one, since I haven't seen them commercially for quite a while!

    This looks very nice and pretty! If you were planning to wear it around home, you could add some brown or black ribbing to the sleeves to make them longer and tighten the sleeve end around your arm to keep some heat in. I know what you mean about getting cold....my shoulders always seem to feel it the worst and when the sun goes down I can feel the cold even more. I've been thinking about making a quilted vest...
