Looking Good Jacket by MacPhee Workshop

Looking Good Jacket by MacPhee Workshop

Every few sewing projects need to be easy to keep some variety in your sewing life.  This is one of those simple projects and I love the results.

Pattern:  Looking Good Jacket by MacPhee Workshop

Fabric:  black bamboo jersey knit

Lessons learned:  
This is a great fitting pattern.
With a ravel-free knit, you don't even have to finish all the hems!
You only need your serger to make the whole jacket.
I used my coverstitch machine and was not super pleased with the stitching over a few layers of thin knit.  It would be better to self-line the jacket and save the topstitching.
It takes a fair amount of fabric to make the circles for the flounces, but they look great.
After making it the first time, it would take me about 2 hours tops to make another.  

True to its title, it is a Good Looking Jacket!
