|It is the angled welt pocket, pointing upwards towards a single button, that provides the attractive waistline detail|
|Very simple in the back - it doesn't look lined, does it? Nice and cool for summer!|
|To get the shorter style, I'd remove length between those dashed horizontal lines I added|
to the picture, near the waistline. You'd keep the cute shape of the hem that way.
Another already-fitted-to-me pattern is Vogue 8044. It that has the same sort of lapels as the inspiration jacket. It would be very easy for me to use that pattern, with modifications to widen and lengthen the lapels to a single button closure. Adding welt pockets would be easy. I'll keep mulling, but I really like this jacket! And I have 2 pieces of fabric that are just right for this jacket.
|Hey, is that a little pucker I see near the sleeve head?|
That pucker makes me feel so good! Why? If I had sewn that it, would drive me crazy, but this changes my perspective. I didn't even notice the pucker until now, so I think I will let myself off the hook next time there is a pucker in one of my own home-sewn creations.
