I used Simplicity 2443 for this cargo jacket, which was a lot of fun to make. The linen is a great color, and will make a super comfy summer jacket for cool evenings. I think I might like to make this again though in a neutral tone with fun contrasted top stitching for a sportier look.
I used buttons instead of the ribbons, which I think make the jacket look kind of frumpy, like it’s coming apart at the seams. The whole thing came together really quickly and easily, I would highly recommend the pattern.
I’ve made a start on the dress from this pattern as well, but it’s not wowing me so far, and my motivation for that project is waning.
Linen/rayon blend from fabric.com. Not the best quality, but a great color!
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
