I almost can’t believe I finally finished it! This jacket is supposed to be my husband’s birtday present, but I miscalculated the working time, so it came out a bit late.
I make some changes to the pattern. The jacket collar is changed to stand-up collar, thus the front opening is changed and more buttons are added. The pockets are changed too, and the sleeves slits are eliminated.
The fabric is blue corduroy with subtle stripes in different hues of blue, giving it a somewhat worn appearance. The lining is double-gauze cotton in tiny stripes of black and white.
To my surprise, sewing it was not as difficult as I’ve imagined. Sure, the pieces were a lot, but I just had to piece them one by one and they magically transformed into a jacket.
Anyway, it was only two days late, so that wasn’t so bad. And the better thing is, my husband really loves the jacket. He has already requested two more jackets. Anything for you, darling.
