This pattern is hard, not because of the construction, but because of the instructions. If you’re not up for a challenge, don’t do this to yourself.

If you must, please do sew a muslin. And instead of spending precious time trying to decipher the instructions, improvise.

I took this already difficult pattern and made it worse by using a nonrecommended fabric that required underlining (hence the negligence). Some of my seams are a little bulky, and I need to add a snap to the inside of the jacket to keep the heaviness of the material from weighing down the left front, but I love this jacket anyway.

You can get a few more details about this project on my blog:

Material Notes

remnant fabric (possibly wool), polyester lining

    I much prefer the fit on you as opposed to some of the other projects posted. Did you go a size down? It looks so baggy on other people. I think my shape is similar to yours so I try to see what a pattern will look like on a busty gal before I dive in and I like how the pattern and fit of yours goes with your shape.

      Thanks! The size I cut was pretty true to my size. If you’re thinking of making this and you’re uncertain, I’d go a size up as you can always either alter the jacket or tie the jacket tighter.

      Thanks, although you haven’t seen the inside up close. I’m sure I could un-impress you. ;)

    I love this jacket. I saw the pattern and you have given me an idea of what to do with the plaid silk suiting that I have!
