Now that I have a jacket pattern that fits (trust me that this jacket fits me better than the mannequin) I wanted to make some lighter weight jackets. This is the first one made with Fashion Sewing Group 1945 without the collar. The jacket fabric is a polyester light weight fabric and lining is polyester as well. Both fabrics came from the LA garment district. I finished the hand sewing while on a trip last week and wore it to a cocktail party with black pants and shell with silver jewelry.
