This is my first jacket and skirt combo. The jacket is McCall’s 5858 pattern. The skirt, I drafted myself. The shirt is also a McCall’s pattern. The material is a charcoal linen with a poly lining.
I learned a lot from this jacket. I learned that my shoulder’s require a forward shoulder adjustment and a shoulder blade addition for the back. I used the book Fit For Real People to get this worked out just right. When making this, I felt that there were certain things that could have been changed to make it better. Currently, I am working on a 40’s suit pattern through Sherry’s Tailoring Sew-along. I am learning all of these little things that make just a simple pattern into an amazing jacket.
