It is jacket weather for sure in the UK and a damn fine excuse to put this pattern to work. It has been patient enough!

Such a simple one to make but beware, there is a lot of hand-sewing involved which makes it very time consuming.

I used an inexpensive wool blend for the outer fabric. It’s got a great texture to it which makes it very snuggly.

For the lining I splashed out on 100% silk satin and I’m so jolly glad I did. It feels like heaven, every time I put it on.

I’m not sure I could get away with wearing anything else other than a pencil skirt with this jacket for fear of looking like a Weeble but it is nonetheless very flattering for such a cropped cape-like shape.

The dolman sleeves and big substantial cuffs did it for me. But I do love those ‘frogs’ too!

Lots more crazy photos over on the blog. Thanks for hopping by 🙂


  1. Woo someone else who has made this!
    I’m still on the final bit of hand sewing. I did mine in grey with bright purple lining. Sort of a little envious of your version 😉
    And congratulations on completing all the hand sewing for this one, it’s getting a little tiresome but I’ll get there lol

  2. What a wonderful jacket! Elegant and flattering.

    I love the look of it paired with a pencil skirt and I agree a full skirt wouldn’t quite work but I think some trouser shapes would, in a ‘retro meets modern’ kind of way.

    1. Thank you Lauriana. I think you are quite right. Though I haven’t worn trousers in such a long time. I’m convinced I look terrible in trousers but I’m slowly coming round to some 50s style capri pants!
