This elegant little jacket is incredibly versatile and will look fabulous in any fabric – from lace and cotton knit for summer to denim and fleece for cooler days, the choice is yours. Teamed with a belt or sash or left open – both look gorgeous. It is very quick and easy to make and with no sleeves to attach, only two seams and the easiest of pockets, it is the perfect PDF sewing pattern for a beginner.
Fabric Requirements – I used Lace for the Jacket and Lightweight Cotton for the Binding, Pockets and Pocket Linings, however, any fabric for e.g. Decorative Stable Net, Muslin, Lightweight Denim, etc, may be used for this very versatile jacket, although stable knits would be favorable rather than stretch knits. For cooler days, fleece, flannel or wool would look super.

The instructions were very easy to follow and this pattern did not take long at all. I made one up and added a belt for more of a cardigan look.
Fabulous to test. Quick and easy and yet very elegant. Well designed with easy instructions am sure any beginner would have brilliant results.
Super fun! Quick to put together! Love it!
