Quote from: undefinedNow, jacket could be any top garment that has sleeves and opens in front and is worn over another item.  That would exclude vests, but not shirts.

So maybe a shirt or front opening blouse?

Yup, as long as it can be worn "over" another garment.  For example the Pendleton 49'er pattern that Marciea and I (maybe Theresa in Tucson as well) recently purchased is basically a shirt and isn't lined.  However, it is cut big, has patch pockets and fewer, but bigger buttons down the front.  The sleeve is cuffed just like a shirt, but again has those bigger buttons.

I've gone down the rabbit hole so completely with what I might do for SWAP I've not really been thinking about this jacket challenge.

Have you found a pattern for the notch collar coat or are you adapting a jacket pattern?

Aww thanks for the compliment :-)

Quote from: indigotiger on October 21, 2019, 09:41:11 pmMy suggestion, if you like and enjoy the red and black jacket, would be to at the very least plan a 6PAC around it, and then if you feel like taking it further, it may be possible to drop some of that sewing into SWAP...

I think you are definitely onto something there Alison, and I've got enough ideas to still sew an entire SWAP afterwards if necessary/desired/inspired!

Maybe we can start a men's coat thread?

That would be fun!  I have a vest for BH on the project list, but there are more than a couple of other items that will need to be made up before I can undertake a sports jacket for BH - meaning I probably won't start on it for another year.  But if you start a thread on sewing menswear jackets and coats, I will be watching and enjoying what everyone else is doing.

The only full coat I have made for BH was a faux suede on (album here).  I was so nervous working with the faux suede that I decided to forgo pockets on the outside and only a single patch and one breast pocket on the inside.  I must say, though, it was an immensely fun project.

Manuela's Sherlock coat for her husband, though, was tremendous.  I will go see if I can find a photo of the done coat.



That is a gorgeous coat! I remember seeing your photos a while ago, but it is nice to look theough them again. I would like to make that pattern in wool when I advance a bit further.

CCL (and mods) - I am unsure where to start a menswear jacket sewing thread. Which section would be best?

I love the planning aspect of SWAP almost more than the sewing. I don't think that I am giving anything away by declaring that this years rules will not require 17 items! Over the years, though, even when I don't finish a SWAP, I've found that sewing coordinated pieces makes a huge difference in how easy it is to get dressed every day. Not that I need to remind Ruthie of that, since she is the queen of coordination in my book!

I have got distracted by the possibilities of a maybe SWAP and pulled out lots of red/black based pieces which I can imagine as various different garments. I have already developed an outline plan which contains 17 pieces including a coat, a silk blouse, jeans, trousers, a long skirt and all sorts of other things. Need to remind myself SWAP doesn't start for over 2 months. (and even when it does its not a very realistic plan, even for me)

This is not helping my current sewing queue which involves a pink knit top, and lots of mending and alteration type jobs.
