The blueish-grey jacket made from fluffy teddy fabric has a straight cut and a wide collar. It is styled with a black turtle-neck shirt, a bordeaux faux leather skirt, round sunglasses and a beret with attached pearls.

Sewing the jacket “Teddy”

Since teddy fabric is very soft, we reinforced all hems, neckline edges and the big collar. This prevents the jacket from loosing its shape over time. The jacket is closed with metal snaps, which are sewn on by hand.

Sewing with teddy fabric presents a special challenge. The Three-Sole Walking Foot with Seam Guide #50 or Dual Feed on your machine will prove essential to transport the bulky fabric when sewing. There are also ways to treat the seams. You can pull the fleece out of the seams with a needle, resulting in less bulky or noticeable seams.

Take a look at the magazine…

The pattern and sewing instructions for the jacket “Teddy” appeared in the inspiration Magazine 3/21 and made it on the cover.

Be it a shell coat or a comfortable jersey dress, a teddy jacket or homewear, being cosily wrapped up makes you feel much more comfortable and protected at this time of year. But also the festive events are coming near, so we went for a floral dress, a leather skirt and a sparkling blouse with matching clutch – quickly sewn and yet very striking. There is an adorable frilled dress for our little princesses and also something for the little princes that will make grannies shine at Christmas. The home office benefits from a discreetly chic look and we have also the right accessories for a pleasant board game party in store. So we can feel completely at ease even in this season.

Issue 3/21 is available as a single issue in the inspiration online shop at the following link:
