After sewing the Silhouette Pattern Jacket, I wanted to sew a jacket that was put together more traditionally and looked more finished inside. I have had this princess seam jacket pattern from Fashion Sewing Group for a few years but wasn't brave enough to try it. It has a vented sleeve (my first) and is fully lined. After three muslins, I got the fit right so the jacket went together pretty smoothly. The fabric is a red with black sueded polyester I had in my stash and I lined it with black polyester. The buttons also came from my stash. I thought I needed an uneven number of buttons on the front and with the large buttons I chose, I think I should have stayed with two. Next time.
I am pleased with the fit and the jacket. It looks boxy on the mannequin but then when I look in the mirror, I look boxy too. This should be a good travel jacket as I don't think it will wrinkle too much.
