Part 2 - 2nd Episode Sewing Bee!

We started the morning with cofee and smalltalk around the table :)

The 3rd challenge for this episode was to sew a canvas-jacket for gentlemen models within        4 hours and 30 minutes

I have been practising at home since I had to check that I could reach the time limit.
This is my first test jacket:

And this is my second test jacket:


Me and Monica had to share the model:
young and handsome Kristoffer.

We had to messure the pattern with the model
to check if the jacket would fit.

The jacket is based on BurdaStyle pattern #124 10/2007

The fabric I have chosen is 100% linen together with maritime gobeline.

I thought I had enough time, but at the end I was really stressed! The last 10 minutes I had to sew the pocket flaps, the front flap, put in the waistband, and get the buttons in place....!
... and iron it of course !
HURRY UP our host, Christine is shouting...!

Kristoffer did a great catwalk !

                                              My jacket with details

I was so HAPPY to receive nice compliments from the judges !

...but they missed the Canvas-fabric !

I was really sad that I've chosen wrong fabric for the challenge..

The judges are discussing who is going to win the garment of the week,
and who has to leave the competition.....!

Yasser was very happy to win the price !

Then to the very SAD decision.....
unfortunately Jan has to leave the show.........!
He started sewing 2 years ago, and he has impressed the judges with his sewing skills !

Everyone wanna give him a BIG hug ! We miss you Jan ♥
