Quick kwik sew jacket

Added Nov 6, 2013

Portsmouth, Unit...






Hello, I made this as I’m sulking because my silk shirt isn’t going to plan! It’s a Kwik Sew pattern and it really was a quick sew. Chose the fabric on Friday and here we are! Its made from a pretend tweed, or wool/poly mix, really as a tester as the fabric was so cheap. But I love the jacket so it’s a keeper! The pattern isn’t for a lined jacket, but I lined it . I used some fabric I’ve had for ages and I love the contrast. Two vintage buttons from my tin . ( buttonholes slightly mismatched but I’m not worrying ) . I will make this again..,maybe a summer version.
Ok back to the silk shirt!
Don’t know why but the photos have appeared really dark??

Material Notes

Wool/ poly tweed fabric from FabricLand, approx £4.99 a metre. Lining fabric for the lining.
Kwik Sew pattern number 3584

      Hi Ellen, yes love the lining…I bought it in error and hid it away for awhile. Knew it would come in handy.
