I made this casual cotton twill jacket from a vintage men’s shirt pattern and just cut off the bottom and added a waistband. It has princess seams and old black plastic buttons. It also matches my EZ-PZ Kwik Sew pants I made earlier in the week!
I used the same cadet blue cotton twill I used for my pants. I had about 5 yards and I STILL have more!
You can read more about the jacket on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
