I made the jacket from Simplicity 2250 – a Cynthia Rowley pattern. I lengthened it, shortened/tightened the sleeves and left off the fabric belt. All the edges (except sleeves) are bound with bias tape, so beware if you’re not comfortable with sewing bias tape! Maybe that’s just me… I’m awful at it. It took me forever to make it look decent.

100% wool. I don’t recommend this since the pattern’s unlined! Oh well.
