Preparing for the cooler weather with a new jacket コアコアのジャケットで秋の準備

日本語が英文の後に続きます。

Although I love autumn and its crisp, cool air, I always find the end of summer is always a little sad… don’t you?

In anticipation for the cooler weather to come, I made myself a new jacket from an older Japanese sewing book. It is I.02 Collarless Jacket in “Daily Sewing Book” by Quoi? Quoi?

「読書の秋」「食欲の秋」など、秋には様々な代名詞が付いていますが、みなさんは秋にどんなイメージを持っていますか?これから段々と涼しくなるのは嬉しいですが、夏の終わりは何となくさみしい感じがしますね。

これから寒くなる日々に向けてコアコア(Quoi?Quoi?)の「デイリーウェア自分で作って好きに着る。わたしたちの毎日の服」からI.02のカラーレスジャケットを作りました😊

It’s not like I needed this jacket really…  but I just can’t stop sewing… Do you know this feeling?

ジャケットがどうしてももう1枚が必要というわけではないですが、何かを縫いたくて、どうせならこれから出番がたくさんありそうなものを、と思ってジャケットにしました。

Anyway, back to the jacket and the pattern itself – it was a breeze to whip up.

The instructions were clear and straight-forward. I cut a Size 9 (M) with no changes except for adding +2cm to the length of the bodice.

Mサイズを少し長く(プラス2センチ)調節して作りました。

縫い方も親切に載ってありわかりやすかったです。あっという間に完成しました。

The front is held closed by one (and only one… yay!) snap button at the top. There was top-stitching involved and called for some embroidery thread (always fun to to try something new:D)… though it is not noticeable due to this busy fabric.

ジャケットの前は大きなスナップボタン1個で(中央の上部のみ)閉じられています。

普通のミシン糸のほかに、トップステッチ用の少し太い糸を今回初めて使ってみました。

生地が派手だからあまり見えないですが・・・

The fabric is a knit, is a mystery in content, and does well in the washing machine…. probably polyester. I usually prefer natural fabrics but as I liked this fabric very much when I saw it in the fabric shop, it had to come home with me:D

生地自体は、バーゲンで買った素材不明のものです。なるべく天然素材を使うよう心がけていますが、今回は色と模様が気に入って騒動買いしてしまいました。

100%ポリだと思われますが、洗濯機で洗ったりアイロンかけたりしても全然大丈夫、取り扱いが楽な生地です🎵

This is my third year writing this blog, but apparently taking pictures has not gotten any easier with time^^;

このブログを初めてから3年が経った今でも写真の自分撮りが恥ずかしいです💧

Well, despite not needing it, I am happy to say that I have already worn it out and will certainly wear it a lot this autumn/winter^^

Thanks for reading!

この秋冬に出番がたくさんありそうですね❤️

  1. Beauti jacket! I love your blog and all the clothes that you make. Oh! I really love the Japanese patterns, 💙

    1. Thank you! and yes an internal struggle indeed…starting to feel a bit guilty, but I can’t stop sewing (yet)! I guess as long as we wear what we make and not let them go to waste^_^

  2. What a great jacket! Classic yet modern, and navy is so versatile. It looks great on you. And since when did we sewists ever let not needing new clothes get in the way of making more?😀

  3. What a beauty of a fabric, and it looks great with this pattern! I am searching for a similiar pattern right now, maybe with some more details/pockets but the silhouette is pretty much what I looking for. Very inspiring🙂

    1. Thank you! I hope you find the pattern you are looking for soon:-) I also recommend this book, other than this jacket, there are also patterns for skirts, dresses and tops which I find quite classic and useful.
