I made the drape option on the Trophy Jacket. There is also a zipper option, which is super cute! I will make the zipper version next. The style is a cropped jacket style and it has a fitted look.
For the jacket, I used a black pleather and I lined it with a beautiful red satin fabric.
The jacket has an accessory piece on the shoulders for which you can use a contrast fabric of your choice or use the main fabric. The possibilities are endless here. For the accent piece, I used a piece of the same fabric, but I added a decorative top stitch design, similar to that of a quilt (see picture below). I like the effect it gave the jacket.
Sewing this pleather fabric was surprisingly easier than I thought! I didn't have a problem with my needle breaking or anything like that.
For the Jogger pants, I used a Ponte de Roma fabric from Joann Fabrics as well. I like this fabric, but I think it had a slightly less stretch from the recommended amount for this fabric (which is 40% stretch or more). For my next pair, I'm using a fabric that has more stretch, which is specially necessary for the waistband and ankles.
The pants are meant to look cropped as well and I love how trendy and sophisticated they look!
The pants are a great addition to my daughter's wardrobe. Now, I want a pair for myself too! I hope Sara from Cali Faye Collection designs some for women too. :D
Here are a few more pictures of the set:
Thanks for visiting my blog. Come back soon, as I will be blogging about other patterns I've been testing lately.
