Sewing clothing and items for my family, my home, and myself. It's so much fun learning new techniques.

Simplicity SewSimple 1961 was made using a micro-pique knit. The pattern comes in sizes XXS-XG and it can be tied in the front. Yes, it's black because it is simply time out (in my area of the country) for a sweater and it can worn with my next maxi dress.
The fabric was a little too thick for the hemming-foot, so I used the open-toe foot. It was an easy job hemming this jacket because the foot keeps the fabric straight and housed between each side of the foot. I really appreciated the nice looking effortless mitered corners.
The length is a litter longer than I wanted, but I like the jacket so I cut two more.
The back length is perfect in that it gives great coverage and it has a straight edge.
