While Liesl is traveling the United States for her road trip book tour, we’re going to be doing a few Sew + Tell posts on Fridays in place of her weekend links. For this edition of Sew + Tell we have Nadina who changed up the Lisette B6169 pattern by adding lots of beautiful machine embroidery! Here’s Nadina.
For the finished look, yes. There were some challenges in ironing it. But, it worked great for the embroidery.
How did the sewing go?
It went better than I had anticipated. I am not experienced at making jackets (I have mostly made tops for myself). The lining was the biggest challenge for me, but that was because of my own inexperience. I followed the sew along method instead of the written instructions for the lining. I love the princess seams.
What was the best part?
I love the lapels. They are the reason the contrasting fabrics work. They also provided a great spot for additional embroidery.
