For the fourth part in what has become an outerwear series, I present to you Kwik Sew 3534. I know that I never really blogged about part two. That post will be up eventually. Today, it's all about my cute green military-safari jacket.
Initially I had planned to add an elastic casing to the waist for definition but it looked weird. Also, I hated the cuffs. They looked dumb to me but work really well for Cosplay. Seriously. When I did a google search on this pattern, three Cosplay costumes popped up. I am so not into Cosplay. I almost abandoned this pattern because of it. I know. I was being unreasonable.
Anyway, I changed the cuff to a more standard one. I put buttons under the flap because I didn't like the idea of small buttons on my boobs. I also wanted it to look more like my Old Navy inspiration jacket. For the inside, I made bias binding from some striped shirting in my stash. I used my twin needle on almost all of the jacket. The buttons are from Wawak.
And that's it. Really. I pressed it up and tried it on. The jacket looked way too stiff. Since that wasn't the look I wanted, I washed and dried it. It looks wrinkly, however, it looked more relaxed than before. I do think I will purchase some Downy Wrinkle Release and see if that takes away some wrinkles without making it look stiff. Or, I could try softening it with some white vinegar. We'll see.
