Jacket-McCall 5759

I made View B in size 12 which is in grey on the pattern envelope.

Fabric used: Target poplin. It is maybe a step down in thickness from denim. It was fairly easy to work with.

Complexity of pattern: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate

How long did it take to complete: 14 hours

Overall Review: I like this pattern. I had to redo the first sleeve I sewed on because I put it on backwards so paying attention to the correct direction certain pieces need to be sewn on for this pattern is important. When I wore it, I left the 1st button undone and opened up the collar a little. I kinda wish I made a 14 in this because it is really form fitting but the 12 is ok. I might sew this pattern again in a thinner material and a more spring like color but I have a few other jacket patterns I need to sew up first.











This is a design that I plan to put on most of my clothes to give it somewhat of a personal touch. It is a Queen's crown. I embroidered it on the lower right side of the jacket.

That's a GREAT jacket! I love it! You look adorable in it too. And, your signature on all your pieces is a nice touch.

I like the logo thingy. Something to make it your own. And nice jacket, too.
