This is adorable! I am a fan of princess seams, which give nice shaping to the back of this jacket. I made it out of an old pair of black skinny jeans I got from Goodwill, and trimmed with tiny black buttons. I wouldn’t hesitate to make it again in a more upscale fabric for a totally different look. I am a fairly experienced seamstress, and didn’t actually look at the directions that much — this is the type of thing I sew full-human-size on a regular basis. I assume the directions were fine.
Such an adorable little jacket with it's sweet puffed sleeves and princess back seams and a low-cut front makes it perfect to complete the look of many tops/dresses. Another outstanding LJC pattern -- easy-to-follow and quick to sew directions for a fully-lined sweet little treasure!
I finally made this one and made it my way. It is sooooooooooo cute I will be making more of these. I changed it just a little bit to the sleeves and added a welting/piping all around and in the sleeve cuff to. I will be posting this one on facebook by tomorrow. You have to get this one so many possibilities.
