My local SAGA chapter had a program on this jacket in the fall and I was determined to finish my jacket, but it kept falling to the bottom of the sewing pile. With determination, I tackled the ribbon with a mighty army of pins!
The jacket is from Sew Beautiful, Issue 128. The magazine contains the pattern and directions for completing the jacket. They used a piece of wool for their jacket, but I chose a cooler and cheaper cut of cotton corduroy. My jacket is a size 8 and my daughter is 8 and should be able to wear it again next year.
The front of the jacket has a lot of extra room in it, so do a trial on the fit if you are using expensive fabric. The skirt if from Oliver+S's pattern 2+2 Blouse and Skirt. I love the ribbon from Renaissance Ribbons on the bottom edge of the skirt. I think I will find a turquoise t-shirt to wear for the summer with this skirt.
Rebecca (American Girl Doll) is dressed in a matching fabric dress from Liberty Jane Patterns and Eden Ava Couture called 1930s Vintage Inspired Dress. It is a quick and easy dress to put together and my daughter loves to match her doll!
My daughter loved wearing this today in the cool weather. Stay warm!
