Done! Simplicity 4412 zebra print jacket
The zebra print jacket is done and I'm ready to take a walk on the wild side. It is a bit wild isn't it?
What the heck - it's a fitting last hurrah to my summer sewing.
And just in time - only had four days to spare until the official end of summer. Although you never know about the weather in this state this time of year. Last weekend we had frost warnings and this weekend could be in the 80s.
This jacket was sewn using the same pattern, Simplicity 4412, as the pink jacket that some of you have expressed a lot of interest in.
The pink jacket was view C and this one is view F... both simple to sew. The zebra print fabric is linen purchased as a "buy the piece" from Fabric Club Fabrics this past June and the contrast collar is black linen from my stash. I even managed to use three buttons from my thrift store find to use on this jacket.
This post will be updated when I have a chance to get the full review written and posted at Patternreview.
BTW - did you all get the e-mail notice from Fabric Mart? They are having a 20% off sale on all fabrics listed on their website. I should have deleted that message... Pin It
