I wanted to make this spring-like jacket warm enough to hold up against the windy city so I added an insulation layer and lined it with fleece. When I started I wasnt sure how big to make it to allow for the extra bulk, but one size up worked out great. I didnt alter anything else and this was the most fun thing (and biggest project) I ever completed, and I’m really happy with it. :)
suit wool, fleece, Insul-Bright(for insulation) interfacing, and lots of buttons
Burda Style for the pattern, Jo-ann’s for the fabric, and my boyfriend’s mother for letting me borrow her sewing machine while mine was in for repairs!
Go far afield in wrap dresses, detailed jackets, and comfy separates for fall.
