Get your motor running with this supercool piece, designed for medium-weight fabrics with a little drape, like washed linen, denim, cotton jacquard, heavy rayon, stable double knits, real or faux suede or leather or a heavy crepe.
Semi-fitted hip-length Jacket has panel seams, back yoke and a band collar with tab fastening. Jacket features zippered welt pockets at the hip plus an adjustable drawstring back for superior fit. 2-piece sleeves finish with zippered openings; the jacket closes with a front zipper with fly. Optional topstitching and lining make this fabulous style truly versatile.
This gorgeous jacket adds a little tough-girl glamour to your HotPatterns wardrobe and you'll be wearing it with all your favorites-try it worn with a simple fitted T-shirt or classic trim shirt, and add a slouchy pant, a chic pencil skirt or your go-to jeans and you've got a totally cool everyday look... or wear it with a pretty, retro-inspired dress or super-feminine full skirt for an eye-catching modern outfit.
For sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 you"ll need around 2 1/4 yards /2.06m fabric, plus the same amount in lining.

I love the jacket. It is well designed and it fit without much alteration. But the markings are minimal and the directions are not clear, paticularly the sleeves. I did make a muslin and boy was I glad! The finished product was worth it. This is best for really experienced sewers.

This was challenging to make but mostly because I am more of an novice. I am totally pleased with it and intend to make at least one more.
It is especially yummy with a slightly full skirt

I took my time and made this jacket over 3 days. The result is great and I love the fit.Now I know that the patterns suggest making a test muslin but honestly who has time for that, however next time I make the jacket I will make it slighty longer. I will definitely be using this pattern again and it is set to become one of my fav's
