Multiple Patterns Inspired Jacket

Pattern: Simplicity 2256 Double Lapel Jacket (used bodice back and lower sleeve ruffle pieces for jacket)
Pattern: Simplicity 2474 Front Band Jacket (used front, sleeve, and front band pieces for jacket)
Pattern: McCall's 6247 Elastic Waist Pant

                       This jacket was inspired by a jacket I saw on Pinterest.
This front picture was requested by Tee. I've lost a couple of pounds since making the pants.
 Fabric: Vibrant Citron Poly/Lycra Crepe Knit from Fabric Mart

Pants - alterations remove 2" front, adjust leg width to 8 1/2", and removed 1" at hipline.
Fabric: Taupe Gray Poly Blend Stretch Suiting from Fabric Mart

*Instead of overlapping the elastic, I decided to try a technique of placing the cut pieces of elastic together on a strip of fabric and zigzag it together. This removes the bulk.



  1. Nice color. I would love to see a frontal pic of jacket on you.

  2. Very classy! Love what you did combining all of these elements. Great job! Such a pretty color on you too.

  3. Pretty, and I like the idea of the elastic being sewed together with a little piece of fabric, I will use this idea..Thanks for sharing.
