Description

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.

    LOVE your jacket. You made it just perfect… your alterations are great… this style looks so comfy and also a little bit elegant with these metal loops at the waist ( at first I thougt of pockets). BRAVO!
