An Easy Chic Free Jacket Pattern From Sew News
This jacket is actually a Thrifty Thursday pattern repeat. First of all, I really like the pattern and it works so well for what I wanted to do. This jacket was originally in the December/January 2014 issue of Sew News.HERE.
A few weeks ago, Shams of www.communing.blogspot.com posted a great jacket that she had made using a Kantha quilt. You can see her jacket HERE. Below is Heidi Klum in an original Kantha jacket.
I was in love!!!, so I headed directly over to Etsy and found this shop and the quilt that is quickly becoming a jacket which you see below. Shams did a much more tailored version which is incredibly beautiful and artistic, but I liked the voluminous version that you see on Heidi, so I knew where to head for my pattern.
Since the quilt is backed, the jacket can be reversible. I stitched down my center back seam.
If I want to wear the jacket with the reverse side out, then the collar will have the pattern.
HERE. It is a PDF pattern, so you will have to tape it together, but there are only 3 pattern pieces so the taping doesn't take that much time.
I'll post my completed jacket as soon as I 'm finished. The weather is supposed to take a turn toward some warmer temperatures next week, so I want to get it finished in order to enjoy the jacket as well as the warmth!!!
Thanks Shams for the inspiration!!!
