I’m still working on this scarf… I’m about half way done.
Started: last Sunday, Needle: Size 10 16″circs, Pattern: Irish Hiking Scarf (free pattern) Yarn: Dream in Color Classy Superwash Merino in 370-CloudJun
The jacket was made from Simplicity pattern 4109 view A, the top is New Look 6731 view D.
I found the material for the top at walmart $2/yd and used 2 yds for this shirt. I followed the pattern as written except I did not add the elastic to the wrist. This was a VERY EASY pattern to follow and put together.
The pleat in the back of the jacket was my own modification. The pattern was written so that the back was 1piece, but when I finished the jacket it wasn’t very flattering on me. I’m still a girl and girls have curves!! So I stitched a pleat and used scrap material to add some detail.The pattern also did NOT call for a lining, BUT I wanted the jacket to be 1. Warm, and 2. Pretty on the inside and out. This was my 1st time lining a jacket, hell my 1st time making a jacket PERIOD. I lined the body of the jacket, not the sleeves with light blue and white striped cotton.
What I would do differently is add the lining towards the end, b.c when I sewed the pockets on the stitches show in the lining. I know better next time.
