A Tremont for the Stars and Stripes

A Tremont for the Stars and Stripes

Enjoy celebrating the 4th of July this weekend! 

​This starry Tremont Jacket was an easy make. The fabric is stable but has enough drape for the pattern. I used a vintage button from my collection for the closure. I can wear this look to the office, out to dinner, and I'm kind of wishing I would have worn it to film my last Craftsy class! (Click here for a discount on all my classes and for the latest class on Taming Tricky Fabrics.)

I'm wearing a MixIt Tank under the jacket and the cropped version of the Valencia Pants

I tested the fabric by pre-washing a swatch. The good news was that the metallic paint stayed intact. However, I felt the washed swatch was too limp for the look I wanted so I used fabric straight from the bolt and I will dry clean as needed.

For the pants, here is a similar linen that looks great with the Star Canvas:

Great look - soooo much better than the usual red-white-and-blue I manage! Love the fabric too.

Linda - love the jacket but how do I adjust for a full bust? A friend made the jacket straight from the pattern and it fits me perfectly - except I need a little more room in the bust (DD cup).

Thanks!
