The Metropolis jacket: 3 tutorials just for you!

Metropolis is not only a little gem of a sewing box, with its high quality materials and its tightly cut jacket pattern, but this wonderful box jacket is also a sewing pattern that is much less complicated than it seems.

A video tutorial for a moment of sewing

A first sewing video tutorial details step by step the sewing steps of your garment. The version described in this video is the Metropolis jacket with the bands that embellish the busts. For a more streamlined version without stripes, you can use this video to follow the steps of this second version.

The technical points are:
- The assembly of the bust bands
- The front pocket
- The assembly of the lining/garment

    There is no major technical difficulty and without being a beginner sewing pattern, Metropolis requires above all precision.

    Sew Metropolis without lining

    A 5 minute mini tutorial that allows you to sew Metropolis without lining.

    Technical points:
    - The laying of the bias
    - The finishing of the bottom 

    Described adjustments for a custom-made garment

    A second video tutorial will walk you through 2 different ways to adjust your Metropolis jacket: 

    The technical points:
    - The adjustment of the height of the bust and arms of your pattern
    - The strong chest adjustment that describes the transformation on the princess cut of the Metropolis pattern

      The canvas step will be essential to validate your transformations before sewing your wonderful Smoking powder grain.

      These descriptions are based on the explanations that we offer in the free guide to custom sewing, I recommend (if not already done hihihi) to download this document for free, it will be a perfect complement to the video and will also serve you in many other adjustments of your clothes Maison Fauve.

      Happy sewing!


      A real gem of a pattern and a very, very professional tutorial! I usually have a hard time adjusting sewing pattern, only the sleeves need to be shortened (because of my small size) but the rest is perfect. So a big thank you for all this work, I can't wait to see what the next sewing pattern will be.

      Thank you for these very clear explanations which will help me a lot to adjust this very nice jacket. I discovered your site a short time ago. I am 73 years old, I have sewn a lot in my life and I am still active in this beautiful passion that will never leave me. I would have liked in my past to have these videos of such quality so well explained because you are very professional. I will subscribe to avoid my mistakes in the future. Thank you very much madam. Thank you at maison Fauve. I am really grateful to you
