My graduation ceremony was last Wednesday, and a week or so before it I realised how stupid I had been to buy a summer dress for an autumn ceremony and frantically begun sewing this jacket. I cut, sewed and lined it in three nights after work (I was impressed!) and although its not as meticulously crafted as the coat I sewed for my friend last winter, I am very pleased with how it turned out. Unfortunately (/luckily) for me the weather last Wednesday turned out to be a beautiful, warm 26 degrees.
It was made using the same 1970s pattern I had used for this lightweight linen version (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/gimme-danger-peplum-jacket) except with the pattern adjusted for a better fit and lining included.
