The Tessuti Sydney jacket, was an interesting sew.
It was also a very quick make.
One reason it was quick was there’s absolutely no edge finishing. For this to work you need a fabric that’s not going to fray. I used a wool blend that has the appearance of a boiled wool from Addicted to Fabric. Most of the seams are lapped, in fact I lapped all of mine, before I read to the end of the intructions, oh well, seams ok, ha ha. I washed it first both to make sure it wouldn’t shrink later and also to have it nice and felt-like.
This is the pocket, even that has raw edges:
A2F actually have a Tessuti Sydney jacket hanging up in the shop. They call it the communal jacket. It was so good to be able to try on before I made it. Based on measurements I was ready to make a medium, but the one in A2F was a good fit. It was a small, so small it was, I never make small!
I took careful note of what others (see below) said about marking the wrong and right sides. This made putting the puzzle together much easier.
And its been getting lots of wear. I love my Sydney jacket. Might take for a spin in sydney next weekend.
Keep warm and happy stitching.
