fancy plaid late-winter jacket

Phoenicia, New Y...






i love doing jackets because you get so much use out of them, somehow i can’t quite change the patterns a whole bunch yet to make it completely mine. the only thing i really changed was the length – the original pattern is much shorter. i almost didn’t have enough fabric, so the cutting out almost made me lose my mind (the fabric being plaid didn’t help much…). i really like this one, i learned a bunch of things, never done that style collar before nor bound buttonholes and pockets. the pattern is from bwof 01/09.

Material Notes

almost flannelly plaid cotton from the oilily outlet in alkmaar, fleece lining from joann’s.





me! and my mom for giving me tons of tips!

    The buttons are my favourite part. I love how consistently different they are from the rest of the jacket.

    I love plaid! I have a jacket similar to this that my mom bought me for Christmas, but it’s too dark and the arms are too short! I love your version!

    Looks really great. The bias binding is brilliant. Great color combination. Did you use regular fleece for the lining?

    Wow, I was sort of so-so on this jacket but I LOVE it in the longer length! I may need to make one now. and I’m totally impressed with your plaid matching abilities!

    Totally fabulous. I love all the bits with the plaid on the bias, that kind of contrast work gets me every time!
