Embellished Jacket

Pattern Description: Butterick 5535 is a semi-fitted jacket with a collar, bust darts, and princess seams. I made View A, which is above the hips.
My dress form is adjusted smaller to fit someone else.

Pattern Sizing: 8-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit.

Fabric Used: Polyester Poplin with polyester lining

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No adjustments were made to the pattern. I added polyester decorative trim.

Conclusion: This jacket will be worn with one of the previously made white dresses for a completed suit look.
