It was my pleasure to sew up a dress and jacket for Five and Ten Design’s spread in STYLO magazine issue 3!
Have you seen the new issue yet?
It’s absolutely amazing…and inspirational…and beautiful… as usual! Seriously, a must read! The featured designers will blow. you. away.

As for the details of the look I created for Natalie….
For the dress, I used the basic bodice from Volume One, shortened it, added 3/4 sleeves (don’t forget to download the free sleeve pattern to go with Volume One), added a longer skirt with a hi-low hem, and I sewed it all up in a pretty floral Ponte knit from Girl Charlee.
The cropped jacket is Look 7 from Volume Two. I just extended the shoulder into a back yoke, added some scoop shaped pockets to the front, a small, rounded collar, and added snaps. I sewed it up in gray wool from Jo-Ann and some leather from the Leather Hide Store which I had in my stash.
Every time I read STYLO I am always left feeling inspired to sew more, to try new things, and to push creative boundaries.
I can’t gush about it enough!

Delia, it’s such a great spread!! It looks like any frustration that went into sewing up that coat was totally worth it, it turned out incredible. 🙂 AND I had to laugh when I flipped over to the page with Natalie because I just made something with that exact same fabric that I am posting this week. Great minds, right? I’m happy to be so on trend with the Stylo standard. 🙂
Totally! ha. I love that you gravitated toward that floral knit too! I still have more. I am totally going to make something for me with it.
Your outfit was by far my favorite! Love the leather on the coat, and that dress fabric is just darling. That coat must have been difficult!

Of course! That floral print is insanely gorgeous. Love it! 🙂
I just loved this look! The fabric, the high low hem, the jacket- just perfection. You are inspiring.
Thank you Jen!
Where can i buy this jacket pattern at 🙂 ?
You can buy the jacket e-book here: http://fiveandtendesigns.com/shop
It provides you with the basic jacket pattern and then gives you ten different detailed tutorials on how to sew it up. We have a dress e-book set up in the same way. The dress book is volume one. The jacket book is volume two.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂
