Curvy Pin Tucks
This was a fun challenge – make a garment with texture. I decided it was time to try out that little foot for my Bernina that makes pin tucks and try to make some curvy pin tucks!
I started by making a bigger piece of fabric with lots of curvy pin tucks. This is a very light weight woven wool, perfect light weight jacket for cool days.
Then I cut the bigger piece and made the front band, front and back yokes and the cuffs out of the pin tucked fabric.
Here is the back of the jacket.
The cuffs . . .
And a close-up of the center front band. Love the buttons I found that mimic the curves!
The pattern is the yoked jacked from MyLabel. Too bad Bernina doesn’t support MyLabel any more – I did like some of the patterns, and they fit me well. Forced me to learn how to make my own patterns for a good fit.
I liked this yoked jacket pattern to highlight the textured fabric with the curvy pin tucks, since it had the front band on the jacket, and both a front and back yoke, as well as the cuffs on the sleeves. A perfect pattern to highlight a special fabric!
