I had just finished painting the Filigree Cross shirt when I realized I had some sweatshirt fabric exactly the same color as the blue paint in the shirt. So I decided to make a jacket to go with it. I used Butterick pattern 4741. It’s a typical jean jacket style with the pocket flaps at the yoke. I eliminated the pockets and added vertical seams on the fronts and silver snaps to add some interest. I also included top stitching on the seams and adjustable straps with metal loops at the waist to allow a more fitted look. I should make more casual jackets with this fabric. It’s warm, soft, and very comfortable because it has a lot of give. The Filigree Cross stencil for the shirt is free to download on my website. You’ll find it by clicking on “cross” in credits below.
