Sewing the S1319 jacket for a wedding outfit

Today, I’m going to talk about about the S1319 jacket and my outfit’s accessories for my best friend wedding. I already told you yesterday about my prep & inspiration and the sewing of the top and the skirt … so we move on!

The Simplicity S1319 vest / bolero pattern

S1319 pattern Amazon 1 13,29 €
Dark Lagune Chambray  Amandine Cha 2 50 €
Silk brocade (110 cm width) DIY District 2 25,80 €
Thread Stock 0 0 €
Total     89,09 €

After 25 million searches for the indispensable jacket or “chic” cape, I realized that I had ordered a vintage pattern some time ago that would be PER-FECT for my project: the S1319 50’s style jackets & bolero by Simplicity.

I made the B version in Amandine Cha’s gorgeous Dark Lagoon chambray and a gorgeous silk brocade lining from DIY District.

There was a last-minute change in the lining as I had planned this nice poplin from Katia Fabric (last photo on the right) before stumbling on the DIY District’s silk.

Sewing the S1319 vest

No change on this pattern that I discovered. The illustrated explanations are clear and the construction of the shawl collar with pseudo-pockets is very interesting. I also took advantage of the chambray’s 2 sides to play with the contrasts between the jacket and the collar.

However, I did have a lot of trouble with the collar of the jacket that has 2 angles to 90 degrees to connect … really not easy. I redid back to it several times without being completely satisfied. But it does not show because it’s under the collar. Ha!

Another point of dissatisfaction: the lining that pulls a little on the outer fabric. Despite a good dose of starch, this silk was sliding in all over the place and I’m not sure I cut the pieces very very acurately: /

Note: I didn’t use my entire coupon of 2.25 m of chambray for this vest …

Sew your wedding outfit: don’t forget the accessories

Unlike me then! I thought I was in time and then I had a moment of epiphany when, suddenly, I said to myself “But which bag? What shoes? And the jewels !!!!? Rhâââ.”

In the accessories, I count the brooch, the necklace, the shoes and the pocket.

The brooch is a sumptuous creation in hand embroidery of Ooliku. The necklace was found in Montenegro.

The shoes are from Mellow Yellow which was for me the opportunity to discover Vinted … because buying new shoes at 180 € to wear them once is not really in my mindset. “Fun fact”, I realized only very late in the design of my wedding outfit that I had no pair of matching shoes with a pink and green outfit. Astonishing, no? What a lack in my dressing! They are already resold.

And the clutch, last minute work, will be the subject of a separate article;) Patience!

That’s it for my wedding dress that did not go unnoticed but that I valued a lot of compliments.

Since then, I have worn again the jacket and the top … the skirt being harder to fit in my daily life! XD

    Superbe, audacieux et classe. Les chaussures vont te manquer, parce que tu voudra remettre la tenue. Et si jamais ça te prends de revendre le patron de la veste, je postule.

      Merci Noëlle ! Pour les chaussures, tout va bien. J’ai conservé mes baskets Annabel Winship à scratch vert canard qui étaient mes chaussures de secours pour conduire et fin de soirée. Sur cette photo on les voit avec mon top :https://www.instagram.com/p/By0VYw8Izci/

      Pour le patron, j’y penserai mais je me tâte encore pour le boléro 😉

    Magnifique ensemble! Tu es trop classe ! Et moi aussi je dis dommage pour les chaussures (Je suis une collectionneuse de chaussures, tu vois ).

      Ah ah ! Je ne regrette vraiment pas les chaussures car, si elles étaient parfaitement assorties, je n’étais franchement pas confortable dedans !

    C’est un superbe ensemble, et les couleurs sont un régal pour les yeux !

    Ça fait une très chouette tenue en tous cas.
    J’ai utilisé (j’utilise) le patron de la veste comme haut de tailleur d’été avec un pantalon droit un peu large assorti, ou non… ça fait quelque chose de très clean et sobre (quand j’ai besoin d’un tailleur d’été sérieux-boulot)… si ça te donne des idées pour reporter la veste, ou réutiliser le patron…
