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 pintucks!

I started by making a bigger piece of fabric with lots of curvy pin tucks.

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.

And a close-up of the center front band. 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.
