This little jacket I made from New Look pattern 6035. It is an unlined princess seamed jacket which I did a Hong Kong finish to most of the seam allowances using scraps of silk from a previous project. It was a pretty easy jacket to sew (although I started it at the end of last summer, got 80% completed, and just picked it up and finished it now!). The Hong Kong finish to the seams took about 6 times longer than a regular seam, so that was very time consuming, but I love the result. Great little jacket! I have some additional fabric that I made this jacket in that I would eventually like to make a matching pant or skirt with to make a suit. This jacket would also look great in a fun color or neutrals to top off a spring or summer outfit.
