TNT Jacket

This jacket was based upon a jacket I bought at Target in 2013.  This red linen version was my first
muslin in 6/2013.  http://kellyssewing.blogspot.com/2013/06/crazy-busy.html.

I decided I needed a black one.  This is a black linen blend from JoAnns. 

 I used hook and eye closures this time instead of snaps.  I never wear it closed, and yet felt I had to add them!

 Instead of a partial back lining, I lined the whole back, with a pleat for ease of movement, since I sit at a computer all day.  The lining is a light weight crepe also from JoAnns.

I created a little tab to hang it from in the office.

I love my new linen jacket.  It is perfect over tanks, as the warmer it gets outside, the higher they seem to run the AC indoors!!

  1. Jacket queen! :) I really love this. So simple yet so chic!

  2. Lovely jacket and that lining is pretty special. You are very clever to make a pattern from RTW.
