Here is some history: I first bought the jacket pattern last October at PIQF. Then after I made the muslin mock-up, decided it was too baggy.
On Sunday I pulled out the jacket to see where I was.
Then I just sat and stared at it for about 20 minutes, trying to think through a strategy of where to go next. Coming back to a project after many months can be difficult just due to the learning curve of remembering where you were and what you had been doing.
Luckily, I realized a few weeks ago that this project is basically "paper" pieced, with the muslin foundation as the paper. I have been drawing all over the muslin with my water soluable pen (which I don't completely trust btw). I drew out the stitching diagram for my triangles so that their points always met at the seams. Then I started on the remaining two front panels. Below is a shot of one with my seams and piecing lines all drawn on.
And here's the jacket front, before I trimmed the pieces. Today I am working on the back panels, then the tricky part will be figuring out how to do the sleeves. The fabric that I am using for those strips you see between panels is actually supposed to be the featured fabric of the jacket (it's the one all the other colors are built around) so I want to feature it more prominently in the sleeves.
I am linking up with WIP Wednesdays at freshly pieced. Hopefully by next Wednesday I will have made even more progress!
