I wanted a jacket to wear on a cruise in January, so I started in November to get it done. Not liking that jacket, I made not one, not two, but three more jackets. Plus innumerable muslins. Each in my mind having better attributes than the prior one.
This one is Simplicity 3708. I half followed the instructions, and half used techniques I learned from YouTube and Craftsy. I adjusted the armscyes, the length of the arms, and body. There aren't any shoulder pads or chest piece. I removed the rear vents because I couldn't get them to look right. It has a collar stand, so the collar sits more erect. This is actually an unlined coat, but pretty close to what I wanted.
Now I am definitely burned out on making jackets. I am starting on a messenger bag I am sewing my Bernina 840 Favorit. More on the bag next time.
Thanks for stopping.
