So I finally worked up the motivation to finish the jacket to match the rust skirt. Weekend task 1 complete. Honestly it doesn’t flatter me much and I’m starting to think there is a reason no one else has reviewed Simplicity 2372 on PR.
It was a pretty simple pattern to make, the only thing that slowed me down was figuring out how I would line it as the pattern only provides for facings. In the end I added full lining just using the original pieces then laid the facings on top and top-stitched before joining to the fabric.
Oh well, live and learn.
Fabric: $14.0 (2m @ $7/m – Centrepoint Fabrics)
Lining: $9.0 (2m @ $4.5/m – Centrepoint Fabrics)
TOTAL: NZ$36.20 / US$24.90
