Description

This took me quite a while to do and it wasn’t until the end that I realised the sleeves were on the wrong sides! These sleeves weren’t very user friendly and I had trouble understanding the instructions given. A lot of it involved guessing by looking at the pictures, other jackets I had in the house and then giving in and doing it my way.
It fits nice though I feel the sleeves don’t allow for much room (possibly because I put them on wrong). Instead of doing the flap pockets on the front I added in hidden pockets on the side, but I put them too low down. Doh!
I will make this again as it is a nice jacket and I know better now about how it should be put together (though I still need help on things like the collar)

Material Notes

black faux suede outer, pink cotton lining, black buttons, a quick unpick.
