Fabric– linen/rayon blend
Notions– 7 buttons $6.50
Pantone Color Challenge Color – Emerald
Pattern – The Frayed Jacket from Favorite Things (2005)
Time to complete– longer than anticipated- off an on over 2 weeks, 24 hrs??
I made the quilted version of this jacket circa 2005 and anticipated making the tailored view soon after, but a lot of water has flowed under that bridge and it didn't happen. Suffice it to say that this jacket has a different fit without the batting between the layers so I needed to take the seams in, throughout. The sleeves are still not as close fitting as I would like. I am planning a future post to compare the two jackets.
First worn– for photo shoot
Wear again – yes
Total cost– Pattern-($14 on hand)
Fabric- ( on hand $30-$45.00 based on JoAnn's fabrics prices without using a coupon, but most likely, I took advantage of sale & coupon pricing.)
Total recent expenditure was only for the buttons – $6.50
I used two different cameras to try and capture the true color of this jacket. IRL, the jacket matches the Pantone Emerald. The first photo was the closest color match.
