Fabric: antique golden sateen stretch cotton and polyester leopard print

Sizes: 8-24

Alterations: Added 4" to the length and decreased the neck to waist length by 1".

This is a lovely pattern and good for my body type. It will look a lot better with a really good pressing.
I think it looks like the pattern. It is a easy pattern to make and I highly recommend it.

Pattern: Jacket from previous post ~ Simplicity 1699 http://sewingfunthings.blogspot.com/search/label/Simplicity%201699


This dress gives me another completed outfit. Wow! This is so much fun.

  1. That is a flattering dress - the open darts give a nice bit of camouflage to the tums we all tend to develop :)

    I was just thinking how nice this would look with a jacket, then I scroll down and see you have made one:)

    1. I'm trying to use some of my uncut patterns, which means for them there are alterations to be made.

  11. Great flattering colour and the jacket you made looks so elegant. I love the fact that you complete what you are going to do. I have problem with stopping and starting. Mainly starting. Anyway, I am female and not male as the name suggests.
