Today I am going to share a little something that I made for my mother. A couple of months ago I made her a jacket McCall's 6844 and she loved it. I don't think she was too crazy about the color, but it did wear her down. So, in favor of her request ( she doesn't like jackets with collars), I've made her another jacket to go into her stylish wardrobe.
New Look 0916 was the patter that I chose. I liked that jacket so much until I decided to try it in plaid
. Yes, plaid. I knew there were going to be challenges for the plaid thing, but I thought,,,,"My Mom is so worth it". The jacket didn't call for a lining, but I had to put a lining in it so that she could wear it with other outfits and feel comfortable with her jacket choice. I struggled for about a week off and on with this plaid. Hope you like it because my Mother is a real trooper, she says she loves it,, but I'm going to wait until she wears it before I leap with happiness.
|Added a button instead of a hook & eye|
Pattern Description: Misses wardrobe. Jacket, skirt, and pants. I made the jacket.
Pattern Sizing: 6-16. I made size 12.
Did it look like the photo on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, this was pretty easy with the exception of the lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a lining and added about 2" to the back of the peplum.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I think this is a good staple jacket either lined or without lining.
Conclusion: I like the look of the jacket. It is very modern and it adds a little flirt to any outfit that you might just happen to pair it with. I think this would be a definite for any color. Without the lining it is also a quick put together project. Luv it.
I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thank you, Until next time.
