Anybody miss my creation for myself like the old days? I do. And this is a muslin jacket that i've made two and a half years ago, about October 2010, right before i was pregnant. It was a jacket i made together with my other green jacket. I haven't got a chance to photograph & blog about it, until now. So here is it:

Well, i've actually made a coordinated skirt with it, but blame my mummy's brain, i totally forgot where is it. Especially after cleaning up my wardrobe recently. Maybe it's in the pile of the other closet in the other room. Here is the only photo, taken in 2010, of the complete set which i wore during a group committee photoshoot in a work event.
I could not remember much about the-making process. But i remember this is a very great pattern and i absolutely love how the jacket turn out at that time. The only down side is i am using a very cheap, low quality, muslin fabric as that time i'm planning to make a muslin first before trying for a better fabric. Too bad i don't have time to make the second one and this one that i've made turn out better than i expected but with a very poor fabric. It is too thin and wrinkled so much no matter how i pressed.
These are some photos i managed to pull out from my 2010 photo folder of the making of this jacket.

I use black satin bias binding to finish the entire edge of the jacket. I love this detail. I also use a self-made fabric button as the front closure. For lining, just some patterned fabric i have in my stash (sorry no picture).
I use Simplicity 4238 jacket pattern. This is a very great pattern. I'm dreaming of making another version of the jacket. Read my pattern review.
Oh, i really miss sewing for myself. Apart from my Popolok Design projects, I am currently working on a mega project. Coordinated dresses for 4 most important female in my life: my mum, my sister, my daughter and myself. How awesome is that. My parent will be celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary this end of April. And we planning to have a studio photoshoot of the whole family. I really hope i can finished all dresses in time. Wish me luck!
