Hey, wat doet deze blog hier? Die is van de Engelstalige pagina naar de Nederlandse overgelopen. Héél vaag.... en dàt was dus zeker niet de bedoeling. Maar goed, we laten de blog maar staan want kennelijk wilde het extra extra aandacht. De uitslofer!
Anderzijds: wel eervol verdiend, want Vogue 1563 is toch echt wel iets heel bijzonders!
Vogue 1583 is a sewing pattern for a coat designed by Rachel Comey. The sewing pattern is ideal for using fabric remnants, allowing not only for cost-effective clothing but also for environmentally conscious use of resources.As far as we're concerned, this sewing pattern is a top choice because the coat feels wonderful, is comfortably warm, presents a tremendous challenge in terms of sewing techniques, and indeed, it's perfect for utilizing fabric remnants.

Rachel Comey is the designer of this coat, and the sewing pattern is published by Vogue. That already speaks volumes about the quality, as Vogue sewing patterns are always quite exceptional (and not cheap...).This coat is designed to utilize various fabric remnants. As an example, two types of fabric are used, but essentially, you can use a different fabric for each pattern piece.
However, do ensure that the chosen fabrics are somewhat similar in terms of thickness, stretchiness (preferably NO stretch), and other characteristics like stiffness, drape, or weight.
The coat is lined, and you can use different lining fabrics for it. You can even make the lining from an extra warm fabric, such as quilted lining or fleece.
The sewing pattern indicates 'intermediate,' which means you could theoretically make the coat even if you don't have much experience. This can be risky because the sewing pattern includes genuinely challenging elements such as the pockets at the top and bottom.Fortunately, the instructions are quite clear, but don't hesitate to seek help if you're having difficulty. The pockets are indeed not easy to construct.
Additionally, the shawl collar is a tricky task, especially if you've chosen fabrics like velvet or corduroy. The nap of the fabric is important to consider, as well as how comfortably the shawl collar 'falls' around the neck.
Lastly, utilizing fabric remnants is a noble endeavor but requires more insight than usual. Consider this sewing pattern as a challenge because you'll learn a great deal from it!

Hoorah! for all the seamstresses who create something beautiful from fabric remnants. Whether it's from deadstock fabric or materials that have already served a purpose, such as tablecloths, curtains, or other clothing.
Why go through all this effort? Because it's not just a trendy thing to do, but also a good practice to be resource-conscious. Additionally, you create a unique garment that won't hang in stores. Perhaps there are even lovely memories attached to the fabric now being transformed into a cozy coat.
Either way, Vogue 1563 is a sewing pattern with a message, and it's a real challenge to make. Not only will you learn a lot from it, but you'll also feel proud and enjoy wearing your unique coat.
