Little Linen Jacket

Added May 14, 2014

Portland, Oregon...






This little jacket I made from New Look pattern 6035. It is an unlined princess seamed jacket which I did a Hong Kong finish to most of the seam allowances using scraps of silk from a previous project. It was a pretty easy jacket to sew (although I started it at the end of last summer, got 80% completed, and just picked it up and finished it now!). The Hong Kong finish to the seams took about 6 times longer than a regular seam, so that was very time consuming, but I love the result. Great little jacket! I have some additional fabric that I made this jacket in that I would eventually like to make a matching pant or skirt with to make a suit. This jacket would also look great in a fun color or neutrals to top off a spring or summer outfit.

    Well done slimnstyle:

    The notched collar is very good. Just the right width too.

    Your jacket looks great on you. I think the high waisted mini skirt from April 2014 would look awesome on you with this jacket.

      Thank you rita61! That’s the plan, to wear this jacket with a lot of other things in my wardrobe! I just might have to make a few more of these great wardrobe staple jackets in other fabrics and colors for summer, maybe lined for winter :)
