Royal Sleeves


Hello loves.. Happy Friday the 13th! Finally had the chance to blog about one of my favorite Me Made jackets. When I first saw McCall's Pattern 7737, I loved it because of the View A short jacket. I wanted to make it in a beautiful Red fabric.  A few days later, I changed my mind and wanted to make the floor length version of View C, in bright Pink. I was so excited and was already planning how I'd like to style it, until I couldn't find the right shade of pink I liked.. So while walking around in circles at Joann's, I came across this gorgeous brocade fabric and I just knew that this was the fabric I needed to use.. Asked the hubs for a second opinion, and he said, "Yesssssssss." And of course, new fabric meant I needed to rethink my design idea.. (the fabric tells you what it wants to be.. ;))


Pattern Description: The pattern is for Loose fitting lined jackets that have length and sleeve variations. There's also an option for side or patch pockets for the long jackets.

Pattern Sizing: I cut out the Pattern Size 12 for the Body of the Jacket and a size 14 for the sleeves (needed more room)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing with it? I think it was pretty close.. 

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were easy. Thought the sleeves were going to be complicated but it wasn't. 

What did you particularly like about the pattern? I love the sleeves.. They look regal.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  I made View B with View C's length..

Would you sew it again? Yes, once I find the right shade of pink fabric I was looking for, I will be making the floor length version in the fall.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, definitely a must make.. It will look great in solid or print fabric.

Thank YOU for stopping by...

  1. Love, love, love your jacket! The brocade is really beautiful and a perfect choice for this dramatic look. I have this pattern too, and am so inspired to sew it up now that I have seen your version. You have such great style-it must be so liberating to have the ability to make your own clothing!

  2. Daaaaaang that is one cool look!! Amazing jacket (and I like your sunglasses too)!

  3. You should totally make videos of you putting the pieces together. I can never seem to make the stuff I make look so well done. I like to look at peoples techniques and yours looks nice and id like to emulate! Think about it. 😬

  4. I have had this pattern in my pattern collection but haven't used it yet. Thank you for allowing me to see how gorgeous it is! Your fabric is AMAZING! I'm going to shop for fabric today. :-)
