I completed the Simplicity Jacket and wrote a review for Pattern Review. I was surprised by the lovely comments I received as I was not over the hill in love with the jacket. I am going to hem the sleeves a little shorter as several suggested as the length I took out was too much. I actually had to add bias tape to the edge of the sleeve, just so I could turn up a minimal amount. This will be an easy fix.
Here are pictures of the jacket.

|Sleeves a little too short|

|Back view, love the fit of the back|
I do love the fabric. The jacket outcome is just not what I expected. I will wear this. I have so many other jacket patterns to try that this one will not be made again any time soon or if at all.
This past week was not much in the way of sewing except for completing this jacket. Hopefully my sewing mojo will return soon, just not top of mine right now.
