I used the Simplicity 2652 pattern for this jacket. I made the project way more difficult than it needed to be by using a plaid fabric and then lining it. Matching the pattern (as much as possible) made for some stressful afternoons, but I am so happy with the result! I made button holes for the first time and they weren’t nearly as scary as I thought.
I used a plaid wool, lined with navy polyester.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
