Butterick 5469 all done...sort of

Just as I projected, B5469 is all done. Well, not quite. I only need to make the buttonhole and sew on the button. I thought I had a button -- wrong. I don't want to make a trip to the fabric store today since I know I have to go tomorrow to promote some classes I'm teaching. The button and hole will have to wait until tomorrow. In the meantime here's the nearly finished product. Other than the wrinkles that are inherent to linen I absolutely love the jacket and the fit.








This is a view of the dart I added to the lapel. It's just a little below the roll line. It was my first time adding a dart in the lapel and for a first attempt I'm pretty happy with it.


The lining is something I had in my stash. You'll see it again because I have an entire bolt of it. Probably got it off the clearance table at JoAnn's for half off. Now that I've got a roll going I don't know whether I want to make another lined jacket on make another pair of jeans--decisions, decisions.

You might have noticed that my weight-loss tracker is up to 6.2 lbs this week. That's right. I had a 5.2 lb weight loss is week. Yippee! I'm hoping to add at least an additional pound or two to that next week.

  1. Your jacket looks fabulous!!! Congrats on the weight loss. I need to jump back on that band wagon. I've been bad lately with my workout goals. I say do both another jacket and a pair of jeans. Hey, make it a suit.
