Butterick 5546 - Part Deux

They say a pictures can say a thousand words...so I'm gonna let them speak:

The front

The back


The collar

The buttons

No, it's not finished yet.  I'm having an issue with one sleeve so I want to take it out and put it back in.  It needs buttons and buttonholes and the jacket needs to be hemmed.  Otherwise its almost done, however, so am I for the night!

I'll put all the gory pattern alteration and construction details in the finishing post...and I'll probably finish it next weekend.  Oh and one more thing...I will definitely make this again during the spring/summer in a linen...I just have to figure out how to line it!

...as always, more later!

  23. I have to say when I read your first post about the jacket, I did not think I would like that jacket pattern. But seeing what you have done so far, it is looking gorgeous and I can find the attraction more to this pattern than I did at first glance. Lovely fabric!

  36. Gorgeous. I'm new to your blog and I have to say I don't think you couldn't have better inspiration than Michelle Obama. As a large woman I'm trying to work up the nerve to start sewing for myself. Thank you for showing off your beautiful work.

  38. Wow, just gorgeous. I have that fabric too and I loved it when I first got it and still love it! Your jacket is so beautiful.

  39. I could actually help with lining it... And I bet people like Gertie could, too. Like with other stuff, there's a trick to it. Or, at least there is the way I do it! (I'm fairly sure that my construction methods aren't the 'approved' methods. I just know that they work and produce nicely finished clothing)
