Fibre Mood Rya jacket in mammoth flannel

How I love this fabric/pattern combo! I’ve never before sewn with Robert Kaufman mammoth plaid flannel. I was expecting something fuzzy, like pajama flannel. No! this is a midweight (6.4oz/sq yd), soft, substantial, gorgeous fabric. Kaufman also makes Shetland flannel, the same weight, but in solid variations.

Wandering through the construction:

  • As with my first version (here), I used facings on the neckline and hemline, rather than folded bias tape. That post also has notes on size and changes to the length.
  • Something I didn’t mention in my first post, the pattern does not have a separate under collar. To allow for ‘turn of the cloth’ and avoid rumpling in the under collar, I slid the under collar forward (a scant 1/4″ at the center) to shorten the underside. As in the pics below, this easy step ensures a nice contour. The the back of the collar is nice and flat, and doesn’t stick out.
  • On this version, I used the side seam pockets, but moved them down. They’re sewn in Kona cotton and are stitched to the fronts to avoid flapping 🙂 Great, roomy pockets!

This is so much fun to sew, I wish I needed more jackets! But I did promise one to my daughter, so that’s good.

Here’s what I had for Christmas dinner – I love love love pimento cheese sandwiches! Wish I had leftovers…

Before I go, thank you so very much for all the lovely compliments on my last post. For now, Coco

  1. The collar points aligning with the black in the fronts blew my mind! Most people don’t talk at length about the consideration needed prior to cutting, fabric layout in conjunction with pattern lines. It’s an often bypassed subject, yet impacts a finished garment almost more than anything else. Whether it is a learned skill or just natural talent, you definitely have what it takes, WOW!

  2. How stunning! I really appreciate seeing and reading about your tailoring construction techniques. Very inspiring to see these beautifully constructed, thought out and well designed garments. I’ve already added two summer dresses of yours to my cue!

  3. Nice, looks like a really comfy jacket. Re your Christmas dinner: I have not had pimento cheese in years……had completely forgotten it existed….but I love it as well. I’m gonna have to get on this!
