Jacket set

Pattern: Butterick 3030 view A; Loose-fitting, pullover top has neckline variations and cap sleeves, above-elbow sleeves with stitched hems, below-elbow or long
Ok, the color is very off, but I forgot to take a picture of me wearing the top and wanted to share the design.
 Pattern: Jacket Simplicity 2474
Fabric: Mauve Crepe De Chine with multi color polyester trim. This is a jacket pattern that has been made several time.

I cut this outfit last year during the Summer and finally got it completed. Normally, I have no UFO's so now I've taken care of this. It's good to save left over fabric. The trim is fabric that I previously lined another suit with. It worked perfectly.


  1. Gorgeous, that mauve really looks good on you. I like the trim on both pieces--the colors will match so many other pieces.

    1. Thanks! I'm thinking of wearing red and tonight I'm reminded of several pieces of fabric that's filed away that might match.

  5. The trim looks fab. Great fabric choices!
