Genesis - from Sophia Ponte Double Knit Fabric
In preparation for a workshop at Nuttall's in Salt Lake City where students were to use a substantial knit fabric (instead of a sweatshirt) as the base - I created this jacket on Sophia in periwinkle. Note the lower fronts of the center band. I photocopied the hatch design in the print fabric, used the BROTHER My Custom Design to 'digitize' it instantly, and embroidered fabric out of which I cut those lower front bands. See more on my FACEBOOK post of June 23, 2014.

Khaki Oriental Genesis Plus Jacket
Using my favorite cardigan - Genesis Plus Talking Pattern™, I played both sides of this oriental double fabric along with silks to create this great, classy jacket. Learn how to work with a large print in the directions.

Adorned - minimal embellishment
On this jacket, I did less embellishment (FAR less) than on the Chili Red Adorned Jacket. This jacket features creative use of sewing machine capabilities like Bobbin Work and creating a Shell-tucked edge. This jacket took approximately 8-10 hours to execute. I used the Brother Quattro 4 machine - on which the Bobbin Work was REALLY simple~! Basic Directions are found in my Sweatshirt Transformations book.

Genesis Too - LONG version
My Genesis Too Talking Pattern lengthened substantially by adding a yoke of polar fleece. Read and HEAR how I do it HERE (and see how neat my Talking Patterns are!)

Book 2 - Lydia version
Scraps of fabric 'trapped' under nylon tulle and free-motion stitched (ala Bernina's Stitch Regulator) and simple binding with my Fabric Fur Trim create this jacket based on the 'Lydia' jacket in my Book 2 on a wonderful Crunchberry Sweatshirt base.
Refined Too - Breast Cancer Survival Jacket
I wanted to create a jacket to celebrate those who have battled breast cancer. I purchased a (poor) pink ribbon embroidery motif from Etsy and embroidered it in different sizes on nylon tulle, stabilized with water soluble stabilizer. Then I cut these out and was able to easily place them on my jacket EXACTLY where I desired, stitching in the gap around the perimeter of each motif. The lower ribbing was lettuce-edged on my serger for the upper collar. Large stitches from the BERNINA 780 were utilized on this jacket as well.
Rachel Breast Cancer Survival Jacket
The directions for this jacket are basically those for Lydia Jacket in my Creative Sweatshirt Jackets - Book 2. Read more details in my July 9, 2013 newsletter coming soon.

Sweatshirt Transformations - from Distinctive Jacket
Executed on Charcoal Sophia double Knit fabric without any problem, I utilized some left-overs from a dance dress over 12 years old and some grey silks to create this jacket following the Distinctive Jacket instructions in my Sweatshirt Transformations book.
