This cozy Winter jacket uses many remnants using McCalls 6292.
I made this style in pleather three years ago.
Even the lining is from someone else’s stash that I bought at Pitt Trading.
After visiting the War Memorial in Canberra recently I added the blue tape to the sleeve.
The zipper is one of the bunch of designer zippers I bought at Pitt Trading too. Yes I do frequent Pitt Trading on weekends. The nearby cafe is very tempting too.
I tend to steer away from short jacket, when they’re a bit boxy, but a contrasting sleeve can add length to the look of it.
Especially if styled with pants or skirts in the same colour as the sleeves.
The coating fabric really feels like Winter armor but is quite soft so I’m keeping this little jacket while it’s cold.
PS: I think disqus works again. For some reason I was able to edit it into the blogger template #ihavenoideawhy. Could I replicate doing this again…#idon’tthinkso.
On ‘blogger’ comments: there’s a ‘Notify me’ tick box when you make a comment. Most people can miss this when they’re commenting. While this is a nice feature, if you tick this box, you’ll end up getting every comment and reply posted on that particular post. It is a two-way conversation with every other comment made.
