Anyway, anybody remember Sonjia from season 10? She was eliminated in episode 12, right before the finale. She created a lot of interesting looks during the show but the one that I loved most was a jacket she made in episode 8 ("Starving Artists"):
I simply cut the pattern right at the waistline since this is were the peplum starts. I sewed up the top part and while I like the asymmetric look of the original jacket I decided to keep the front panels straight - mostly because I couldn't wrap my head around how to design this part of the jacket to be quite honest.
For the peplum I pretty much just looked at the picture of the Project Runway jacket, drafted the pieces and cut them out from the muslin and attached them to the top part. And then I keep altering the pieces until they had the look I intended and that matched with the look on the picture. Let's say it took me a while :)
I put three gray buttons onto the front panel and went for a decorative orange botton to go on the collar, just to pick up the colors from the lining. I found the same buttons in a smaller size and decided to put them onto the back of the sleeves as an additional accessory (you can see them in the picture below).
