When a cardigan just won'€™t cut it, choose this
versatile jacket, perfect for medium weight fabrics
like linen, crepe, sateen, chambray, twill, or a
lightweight tweed; this also works in stable knits,
like a light weight ponte, or a firm sweater knit.

Semi-fitted, collared, edge-to-edge soft jacket
has a softly rounded collar, plus an optional lining
and patch pockets. Jacket features panel seams
with Dior darts, 3/4 length 2-piece sleeves with slit
cuffs, a half back belt and a curved front hemline.
Decorative topstitching and shoulder pads are optional but fab!

This jacket is the perfect piece to add a crisp finish
to all your outfits; it’s perfect for throwing on top of a
sleeveless top or dress for extra coverage and warmth,
and it looks just as gorgeous with your favorite jeans-and-T
combo as it does with your 9-to-5 workday wardrobe.

    This is my favorite jacket pattern. It lends itself to a number of different looks from easy, breezy casual to all-business. The one I made is in black ponte and looked fabulous for my work meeting today!

    A modern take on a classic. This little jacket can be dressy or casual depending on the fabric. I liked the options for attaching the collar and other hints included. Reasonably easy to make and would suit most figures.
