I love red, I love denim, and I love jackets....Can you see what will happen here? If you guessed a red jean jacket then you were right!
And here is the pattern I used:
This is the Stacie Jean Jacket from StyleArc. It really is a simple rendition of a jean jacket.
It was starting to snow as DH took pictures for me.
I used my typical size 12 for SA patterns with the following adjustments: Swayback adjustment and also sloping shoulder adjustment. I didn't make an FBA based on how the pattern tissue fit me. And, I will never, ever, ever button this.
The sleeves are just right as is the length. I am 5'7" for reference.
I used real metal snaps and appled those instead of button holes along the center front.
At the flap pockets, I used two metal, silver-colored buttons from Joann's.
I love the look. I should also state that I used fusible interfacing at the collar, front facings, waistbands, and pocket flaps. I am really please with how this turned out. If you follow the directions, cut accurately, stitch and topstitch carefully, you'll end up with a great jacket!
Thanks for reading!
