Missy’s Favorite Jacket
Missy Billingsley – 2 Days (Baby Lock Machines Provided)

Missy is rapidly becoming known for her creative jackets. The “Missy” Jacket or a variation of it can be seen at most every MPC sewing event. By popular request, Missy has designed a special embellished jacket for 2013. The dart-free jacket focal point will be the embroidered printed panels on the front, back and sleeves embellished with Sashiko stitching. The jacket will feature strip piecing with Sashiko embellishing techniques such as Flip Stitch, Double Flip Stitch, cording, and beautiful Sashiko quilting by machine. Learn to use the Quick Pleats tool to add an easy embellishment and also how to add a hidden in-the-hoop zippered pocket. The women’s embellished jacket made from an easy, semi-fitted jacket design with a flattering hemline can be made in sizes XS to 3XL and will also include a soft silky lining.

Note: Any machine embroidery designs used are for in-class use only.
