Vintage Simplicity pattern from 1955 made in lightweight English wool. I love cropped jackets & this one is going to be a favourite. The jacket is fully lined to make it a bit more substantial. I handstitched the velvet trim on the collar (took ages!) but ran out for the cuffs. In hindsight this is probably just as well as cuffs always get battered & caught on stuff & it wouldn’t do if the trim ripped off!
