Faux Stretch Leather Morris
I wanted to make something with stretch leather really bad and the Morris turned out to be the perfect pattern! I chose to add a lining in ITY because I also wanted a fun pop of color. I followed the instructions on Grainline's blog for drafting and bagging a lining and it worked well, although with a very stretchy lining like ITY I think you need to add about an inch less for the bottom pleat/bag. Topstitching the faux leather was a bit tricky, but once I switched to a leather needle it went a lot smoother! This is a fun jacket to wear and I made no sizing alterations, I definitely will make another one-just maybe without the complicated addition of adding a lining!
