Lovely Blue Floral


Today I am blogging about a jacket I made quite a few years ago but for some reason I didn’t blog about it . I still wear it and love it. The pattern is a Vogue Marcy Tilton Pattern V8982 I don’t know if it’s available anymore. As a short person it is better to wear cropped jackets . They are more flattering and now being in a wheelchair I find they work well .

I made the jacket but I will make another and a vest I think going forward. A great pattern.
Perfect buttons
The fabric was a gorgeous linen from The Fabric store.
I underlined the bodice with a white cotton taken from an old sheet . It is beautifully soft .

When I bought this linen I also bought a matching blue linen and made the Tessuti Robbie pant with that. I have blogged about those. This is a delightful jacket to wear light and bright and feels incredible on .

Happy Sewing,

    I love how you have made the fabric run through around the buttons. I can completely understand why you love the jacket. I do too!
