This was my second version of this jacket (first is here). I made this one out of a nice stretch corduroy with a stretch satin lining. The first jacket I did was in a double knit and the peplum falls beautifully, but the corduroy is just too thick and the peplum sticks straight out!
I ended up unpicking the peplum and just hemming it as a cropped jacket.
Before: (I lightened the pics so you could see them better)
Stretch satin lining:
Piping around the facing;
Pattern Details; McCalls 5936
Description: Semi-fitted princess seamed jackets A, B have separate lapels, flared peplums and sleeve variations
Fabric Used; Stretch corduroy for the main fabric and a stretch satin as the lining.
Size: I made a 18 with adjustments - FBA, extra back width and extra arm width
Will you make it again: Yes, if I make the full jacket it will need to be in a drapier fabric, and I'm thinking about making another cropped version in a denim.
