Black Jacket!

Pattern: Butterick 5719 Princess style jacket.
Fabric: Black Brushed Twill Poly Medium Weight
Lining: Polyester


The same jacket here. This is the second time that I've tried to satisfy my desire for a new black jacket. I've given away these pants as well as the jacket to the same friend. I forgot to adjust the jacket sleeve length which are too long and the jacket was too large. Maybe I'll get a black jacket before the cold season passes.



I used the technique for lining the jacket that was on the pattern. This is for the sleeves and the bodice so I didn't want to take the time to redo it.

    1. Thank you! I'll be doing it again when I find more fabric. I love this fabric, but it has sold out.
