We’ve had a few warm days in northern Indiana but for the most part it’s still Nippy.
Still a little frosty in the morning
There are little signs of spring popping up. Yeah, a little crocus flower.
Seizing the perfect opportunity to use up some embossed faux fur that was in the stash, I decided to make a jacket using a factory remnant of Simplicity 1758 view A.
I was able to buy just the 1 jacket pattern (original has 4 styles). The trade off for the $.97 Walmart price was it came without instructions. Well it had instructions but they were for an apron!
I was a little confused about this armhole but the great customer service lady at Simplicity assured me the pattern was okay.
For $.97 at Walmart you can get a discount pattern with minor packing issues. In my case it had apron instructions instead of the jacket instructions inside. ( Another discount pattern came with an extra sleeve piece) Oh well. Simplicity has awesome customer service. They helped me out with an issue I was having with the armhole. Basically, I needed some assurance that that the pattern would work and too keep going. It worked!
I was little confused about the unusual armhole. Nephew offered to help but…
Embossed faux fur fabric. Cozy but not too warm.
Back view. Simplicity 1758
I used two buttons layered on top of each other for more interest
Left over hounds tooth fabric was used for the facing
This jacket has a close fit which only allows for small pockets in the front seams. Simplicity 1758
Simplicity 1758. Very easy to wear. This jacket only has a button at the top.
I would like to make this Jacket again perhaps in denim.
