Stretch Denim Jacket

I wear a lot of tunics and never seem to have the right coat or jacket to wear with them.  I previously made a version of Katherine Tilton's B5891 (you can see it on my Coats and Jackets page) and liked it very much.  But it is too short to wear most of the time.

So, I lengthened it by 4 inches and gave it another go.



It looks a bit denim colored in this photo but it's a wonderful black with white threads running through it.  It has just enough stretch, totally bulletproof.



Sorry this photo might be a bit dark.  It's a hanging pocket I learned in a recent class with Sham's.  I love the shape.

This is such an easy  jacket to make.  I encourage you to give it a try.  The collar and shaping are so flattering, too.

  6. Lovely choice of fabrics. I bet this is crazy comfortable and fun to wear. I really like it. I have the pattern, but have yet to make it. I'm glad you made it in denim. That's one of my favorite fabrics. :)

  8. Love it, especially the cool pockets! I've already made this jacket more-or-less as she wrote but I'm liking the longer version. Gives me ideas...
