Sewist: Liz

Project: Lined jacket and shell
Fabric: jacket: double-faced wool and rayon knit; shell and jacket piping: polyester print
Lining: Stretch polyester/lycra
Closure: Exposed zipper
Pattern: jacket: Butterick 6382, view D: shell: Vogue 9109, view A
Notes: A prolific member of our lively Thursday sewing class at AAF, Liz chose a casual jacket pattern with a stylish zipper closure. Utilizing both sides of the fabric, she added lots of pizazz. The facing is the complimentary reverse of the gray herringbone.The lining is a stretch polyester that works perfectly with a knit. Additional details include a flat 3/8" contrasting piping on the pockets and between the front facing and lining of the coat. The contrasting print shell is the perfect fabric for this double-faced knit. These choices pull the whole look together and make the end result easy to put on and go.
