INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NEW PATTERNS…

I went to Japan last year and the street-style there inspired me quite a lot. Particularly in Kyoto, where most women would be wearing the same outfit over and over: a loose top or jacket, a beret and some loose skirt or wide-legged trousers above the ankle. There was something very chic and casually elegant about this combination and I became obsessed with the silhouette.

Sources : Denia, Tello and Botanic inspirations.

The patterns volumes of this collection are directly inspired by this travel and all the things I have seen there.

I chose loose and destructured lines for Denia and Botanic patterns in order to get easy to wear garments with style. According to the fabric, colors and patterns you choose,  there are a lot of opportunities to make different options and wear them!

The Tello Jacket is directly inspired by the utility jacket: my grandfather wore one almost everyday during my childhood! I decided to use the same base and make some changes in order to offer a modern take on this great jacket.

These are all the inspirations that lead me to create this chic and casually elegant Japanese-like silhouette. Perfect for the up-coming summer… and later as well! How about you? How do you come up with your sewing projects inspiration? Trips, colours, shapes, magazines… Let me know!

Zoom in: the Tello jacket

Let me introduce you the Tello jacket today.

Tello is a classic utility jacket, unlined and with many pockets (by now, you should know I’m a pocket addict!). It features topstitching, a Balmacaan collar, and one-piece sleeves shaped with an elbow dart. The front closure can be made of buttons or snaps.

As for the various pockets, I bet you’ll find what you need: large hip U-line pockets, a small chest pocket and a vertical zipped chest pocket with lined interior. So practical!

I had a similar jacket when I was younger and I love how it was so versatile. That’s why I wanted to design a jacket that goes with almost everything in your wardrobe: a cute dress, a pair of jeans, shorts… Typically, it’s the jacket you grab before going out on a summer evening without thinking!

The Tello jacket construction is quite easy, I would recommend it as an intermediary level pattern and it would be great as a first jacket with interesting details. It’s unlined (you can either serge the seam allowances or bound them with a pretty bias binding tape matching the lined pocket), the one-piece sleeve is easy to insert and the collar is only one piece. Use snaps instead of buttons to make even simpler.

You can use a great variety of fabrics to make the Tello jacket: gabardine, twill, denim, lightweight wool or linen like the presentation version. You also need some lining for the pocket (cotton would be perfect) and bias binding if you choose to finish your seams this way. No interfacing is required, this is a rather informal jacket, but if you think your fabric would need it, feel free to interface the collar and facings.

Easy to make and easy to wear, what more can you ask the Tello jacket?

You can find the Tello jacket pattern in the shop in both PRINTED and PDF versions.
