Simplicity 2728

And just in the nick of time, right before a cold front moves in, I get to wear my white jacket!

This is Simplicity 2728, made with Vera stretch cotton sateen from Fabric.com.  This is a great jacket. I had already worked out the fit when I made my previous version which you can read about on my old blog...

This time around, I sort of created my own view again: 3/4 sleeves without sleeve bands,  topstitching, and extra buttons. I also did not do the back tab detail.

The entire jacket is lined with white bemberg rayon.  It goes together wonderfully, and the pattern instructions are very easy to follow. I cut a size 16 with my usual full bust adjustment. And after my coffee disaster, I was able to get it washed and pressed in time to wear to work today.

I really like it. Very much.  The fit is so nice, and easily adjusted with those nifty front shaping darts.
Now I have to get to taking in some of my pants...good grief, look how baggy they are! Thanks to 

Next up? I actually need a new lunch bag...I'm embarrassed to show you what my current one looks like!
I'll be making one from "Lunch Bags!"
