Description

I have been looking for the perfect leopard print jacket for spring/summer for ages and when I found this leopard print cotton sateen I knew it would be just right. I used McCall’s 5525 View A with the sleeves of View D. I underlined the sateen with come plain white cotton because it was quite thin. I changed the position of the pockets because I thought they were too low but other than that I followed the instructions pretty closely. I used red bemsilk for the lining. I had some fabric left over when I had finished so decided to make a matching pillbox hat. I made the hat frame out of buckram and then sewed the leopard print outer on to it. I also lined it with the same red lining as the jacket.
I’m so pleased with the way they turned out. I think they have a 60s vibe. More on my blog.
