This is my version of the Cropped Jacket pattern
It was really quick and easy to make because I did not line the jacket
unfortunately I did not pay enough attention to the instructions – THERE IS NO SEAM ALLOWANCE ON THE PATTERN! so i had to put an extra panel in on the sides
I also had (and always have with all sleeve patterns – my lack of skill!) too much sleeve, too little sleevehole. so i turned the extra sleeve into box-pleats as per photo 2
only real problem though was that the instructions didnt say where to put the peplum – does it look a little high to you?
Charcoal pinstripe denim
