Twitter pal Gillian, of Crafting a Rainbow, and I conspired together and decided we needed to sew Sewaholic Cordovas for Spring. She didn't need to twist my arm much, the pattern was already in my stash and it seemed like a good time to jump back into jacket sewing.
Not gonna lie, going into this I had some concerns about the style. Peplums do not look good on me. (Why did you buy it then....because it was cute, shut-up!) Despite knowing that I just had to make up the first muslin with all the fluffy peplum bits.
Cordova Muslin #1 - The pattern as drafted with both peplum layers.
Cordova Muslin #2
Further inspiration came from this review where Diana put contrast panels in her Cordova. Awesome! I had to do that too and the stash had just the right fabrics to do it.
BAM, cobalt wool suiting and black faux leather. Ohhhh Yeah I'm gonna be a faux badass!
