BWOF (now Burda Style)
I was interested in a light weight spring jacket, so I paged through some old BWOF that I have, not wanting to buy one more pattern to find space in the pattern file. This one was unlined, all the better (BWOF June 2008 #102). Notice the stress drag line on the right shoulder?......that is result of my alteration to accommodate my low shoulder on that side.......and the flapping, unbuttoned bottom jacket band?......Dummy's hip measurement is smidge larger than mine, so I couldn't get it buttoned.
Front Detail I was attracted to the scallops.
Another little detail on the sleeves of just 3 little tucks down the grainline.
The fabric is a cotton shirting from Michaels that was on sale last year for $5 per yd. Such a deal a spring jacket for $12 including buttons etc. One more thing, since I have rather prominent shoulder blades, I did insert a back shield for just another layer of fabric in that area. Should have photoed that too....oh well, you know what I mean. All the seams are top stitched that helps it all hang together nicely.
All in all, I like the outcome and even though it might seem to have a rather dressy look, I plan to wear it with casual bottoms.
