A Shacket for Joe, The Reveal

I have been working on Simplicity 1328 for Joe.  Unlike the pattern,  this will be a lined shacket with welt pockets.

I was going to put a red lining in it that I had in my stash.  Joe quickly vetoed this idea, so we went to Joann's to get the light-blue lining for it.  Joann's needed to order the buttons I wanted, so one more trip was necessary.  Luckily we live in a county that only has nine reported Corona virus cases.  So I feel safe to go to out of the house once a week.

I enjoyed sewing this with my Wilson Rotary sewing machine.  I stitched on the buttons with my Bernina 707.

Maurice helped me with it, even though it was too large for him. 

Here is Joe.  He likes it.

Our weather has turned to hot, 100 degrees this week, so might not need a shacket for a while.

Thanks for stopping.


  1. That looks great! Nice work on the fitting.

  2. Nice shacket. I'm sure he'll get lots of use out of it.

  3. Extremely great fit. Excellent job wil
