I absolutely fell in love with this pattern when it was released. Jacket was done by August but it took me until mid-Nov to put on all the buttons (a problem I have with most patterns – final touches).
I really like the fabrics that I used which is probably why I still like the final product. I messed up by not ironing the linen enough before cutting out the pieces so it will never be completely wrinkle-free. Had some problems with the opening on the sleeves but luckily no one looks there. Also, I made things up with the buttonholes…but they work!
Can’t wait to wear it again in the spring!
Outer layer – gray linen
Lining – cream/ivory bottom weight
