Where Did You Get That Jacket? CD
CD-Rom by Marcy Tilton and David Coffin
Marcy has been making jackets, designing jacket patterns for Vogue, writing about jackets, and teaching workshops on fit, design and construction for nearly 30 years. "I love making a jacket or vest, and am energized by figuring out better/easier and more fun ways to make them. Jackets and vests are a favorite blank canvas, I always have at least one or two in the works. This CD-Rom is the result of many years experimentation and refining simple ways to head off trouble when making a jacket, coat or vest."
This information packed CD-Rom is like having Marcy with you in your own sewing studio, a private tutorial that will get you inspired to make your own distinctive jackets, vests and coats. There video segments, (nearly 1 1/2 hours in 20 minute setments) on fit, construction and design details and a gallery with a close up look at Marcy's hand made jackets and coats and others from her international collection. Also included is an extensive list of fabric and other resources complete with with hotlinks, a slide show and informative handouts you can print out.
Both beginners and more advanced sew-ists will learn from this inspiring virtual workshop. NOT about classic hand tailoring, this virtual workshop is about making contemporary jackets, coats and vests you'll love to make and wear.
