Description

A light lined jacket—I wanted something light enough to wear over a sweater and this fits the bill. It is roomy and comfortable. The instructions didn’t specify wear to use interfacing, so I skipped it, but I’m wishing I had at least used some in the collar to give it a little more structure. It’s rather floppy. The pattern was easy to assemble and I like the cut. I did lengthen the peplum by 3 inches, and I’m glad I did—the length is perfect!

Material Notes

A wool-like blend for the outside, and a poly satin for the lining.
