Description

Princess line jacket which I feel like I’ve been making forever. The pattern is New Look 6736, view B. I liked the collar – it has a 60s feel to it. The wool fabric I used gave me so much grief with the way it stretched and frayed. I’m so happy its finished!

Material Notes

Wool weave, bemsilk lining

    Nice work. If you had trouble with the fabric, it sure doesn’t show in the finished product. It looks flawless. Very “Jackie-O”

    I think it’s pretty great! I love the shape of the collar, the loose shape of the whole jacket and although the fabric gave you so much grief, it looks very nice (and, being wool with good quality lining, I’m sure it will stay nice, and be nice to wear for a long time to come)
