Simple pattern–great jacket

Simplicity 4991 pattern

To finish my sewing weekend I have made this very simple jacket. I have bought once a small piece of boiled wool – 1,20 cm. I had few ideas about the jacket I wanted to make.
Of course having so many patterns it is not so easy to choose. Together with the fabric I put aside a patterns but then I came across this Simplicity 4991 in my pattern stash, which includes VERY simple, strait jacket.

 

 

 


I have squeezed the pattern pieces on the fabric and I even had left small piece to make pockets.

Having not enough fabric for finishing the edges I have used serge to finish collar, pockets and hem. The buttonholes are hand finished.

It will be perfect to wear it with tops, skirt and dresses. And the trousers … when ready.
I love the final result very much.

    1. This jacket paid himself back hundreds times. I love it and I was wearing it very often. It was good move. And the pattern is so easy. If you need to make something fast – this pattern is perfect. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I am wearing this jackert very often now. It is perfect for this weather and very confortanble 🙂 I am very pleased with it. And the pattern is very easy! I think I will make more jackets using this pattern but different colours – of course 😉

  1. wonderful jacket, looks so comfy and stylish! I love the decorative wavy stitches and the fact that you turned little fabric into an opportunity for lovely details like the serged edges of your collar.

    1. Thanks a lot! It was a little challenge but I liked it. Probably with other fabric it would be more difficult to fit the pattern pieces on the fabric.
      I am wearing this jacket today and I am really glad of it.
      I have to use serge more often to finish edges (if possible) … it is fun!
