This simple jacket has been sitting cut and ready to sew for over 5 months. Every time I get a moment in my sewing room, something aside from this jacket takes my fancy.
Well, there were a few contributing factors that pushed me in to making this. I had only two other items ready to sew. One required a black invisible zipper, which I seem to have run out of, and the other needed me to change my overlocker thread, which I prefer to do when I have a few projects that require the change.
As it was already cut, this only took a couple of hours to make. All inside seams are serged and I made bias binding out of a Liberty remnant for the edges.
I think the contrast between the purple/grey ponte and the Liberty is really sweet. I also trimmed the sleeves with a thicker cut of bias, so they can be rolled up or down. I also shortened the jacked by about 2 inches.
I really like this simple cardigan/jacket. I’m sure it will get a lot of wear during this trans seasonal time in Sydney. I can’t believe it took so long for me to make!
