Trisha’s Cordova Jacket: With Leather Panels!

I am looking forward to sharing this version of the Cordova Jacket with you today! Some of you suggested that this jacket would be great in leather, or with contrast paneling. Trisha’s done both in her pattern testing jacket!

Isn’t it gorgeous? You know you want to check out more of her photos on her blog here, Made by Trisha. (She even shows photos of the inside of her jacket! Curious sewers always like to see the insides.)

Can you believe this was her first time working with the pattern and she was brave enough to sew with leather? I’m certainly impressed. Not only did she mix up leather and wool, but she sewed the entire jacket, completed the pattern testing survey and took these beautiful photos all within the two week deadline. Go Trisha!

Thank you Trisha for being a pattern tester!

And have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Stay warm if you’re in the cold part of the world like I am. If you’re in the southern hemisphere, I am envious of your sundress and sandal weather!

    This is a wonderful version. I was thinking how great it would look in leather, but I hadn’t thought of panels. They look fabulous with the wool fabric.

    I had been debating whether or not to buy this jacket patter, but Trisha just pushed me over the edge. I just have to make it with some leather. I will be purchasing it after Christmas when I have new sewing money.

    Beautiful jacket! I’m glad I looked at her pictures on the blog as I thought this was a black jacket and couldn’t see the lovely detailing. Great job on this!

    I love this version. Great job, Trisha! I had thought about what it would look like with leather accents in different places. This way really shows off the princess seams well.

    And it’s purple! Great jacket, and I love the little peplum.

    The jacket looks great. And, I have to add – I put in my order 11/26, and received it today – only 4 days later, and I live in the states. I’m quite impressed with the speedy shipment. Thank you Tasia! I say again… you leave us wondering what yummy patterns you are planning for the upcoming year…
