My Sparkly J-Crewish Jacket

Added Mar 1, 2009

by sunnilj9

Cedar City, Utah...






lcavagnolo’s knockoff of this J-Crewish creation was so inspiring. Her jacket can be found in my favorites. Here is my rendition, made using Simplicity’s 3538, I created my own ruffly collar and added my own pocket pattern. I made this with a silver metallic linen and lining fabric. I had to add an inch to the back yoke in order to limit the stress on the arms (I’m a fairly broad-shouldered gal). I added a handstitched running stitch in dark grey and did a simple machine buttonhole. Hope you like!

Material Notes

White/Silver metallic linen, thread, buttons, bemberg lining

    I really like everything about this jacket but I especially love the running stitch detail. It really finishes this off.

    Love this, especially the fabric. I’ve been looking for fabric like this for about a year. Where did you find it—somewhere local or a commercial store?!?!
