Description

This cropped fleece jacket is fully lined, it has gathered sections along the lower edge of the front and back, and has a chinese knot and loop closure. It is very warm despite it’s overall length and sleeve length. It is perfect to wear with turtle neck tops because it adds that extra warmth without being too hot. This jacket was alot of fun to make because I was able to recycle a blouse I made a year ago and was never able to wear because the print was too bold for me. For the fleece I used a blanket I found in my linen closet.

Material Notes

Fleece, Cotton Print, Poly. Silk Lining

    ThankYou for all the great comments! I used McCall’s (M5530) pattern. I made a few personal changes to the collar, sleeves and lining. PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS JACKET IN THE RECYCLE MINI CHALLENGE!!!
