Jacket - Simplicity #2149


Jacket - Simplicity  #2149
Hello everyone! It’s been a quick month. We are enjoying early signs of spring. My most recent project is this light wool jacket fully lined with a zipper. This is a great pattern and fairly easy to follow. It does not come with a lining, but you can easily use the same pattern pieces and it should work. The sleeves ran a bit short, at least for me. Which is OK, seeing it’s a light  weight jacket and not meant for extreme cold temperatures. The pockets too were a bit small. And the collar could have been higher up and closer to the neck front. Overall, I think it has great lines and wears really comfortably. This is a pattern I hope to revisit soon. Meanwhile, I’m working on a dress that is nothing like I’ve ever made before. It’s all pleated and more pleated. It’s driving me crazy and it’s been taking up a lot of my time. I’ve become obsesses in making it work. I believe that by the end of this week I should have it finished.  Meanwhile, I hope your exploring new ideas and creating things only you can create… and as always, thank you for sharing in our sewing journey.
