Guys, I made a jacket! Like a cute, zippered real life jacket!
And I took a million pictures to prove it!
Because when it looks this gorgeous on your little model you just can’t help yourself!
This is my second pattern from Blaverry. I mentioned last month that I’ve been given the opportunity to work with Christie at Blaverry to help promote her fantastic pattern shop.
In return for a pattern I promise to spread the word about her patterns. Great deal, right?
This month when she announced that the Decklyn jacket would be the pattern to promote I honestly was terrified! I sew knits… like half hour, quick and painless projects.
While this jacket took a bit longer- two nap times shockingly, it was such a satisfying sew.
The pattern is impeccably made and the details are so good!
It’s fully lined and has the cutest zippered sleeve accents!
I used a cotton twill from Joann’s and a woven lace I picked up in LA. The lining is something I’ve had in my stash for awhile. Sophie picked it out and I think I’m rubbing off on her- I totally would have picked it for myself!
I love that this jacket will take her right into the spring!
The pattern instructions are fantastic and Christie is so readily available if you ever have any questions. I just love that about pdf patterns- most designers love to help!
She loves it as much as I do- can you tell?!!
She said she will happily wear it every day!
I told you I took a million pictures! As much as I love my quick sews, my favorite makes are always the ones that I take my time on. The amazing details and perfect fit make this a project that I’ll be proud of for a long time.
