A jacket with a collar and lapels has a more dressy appearance then a “hoodies”. I also happen to love short jackets, so when I saw this cropped jersey jacket from Burdastyle I knew I HAD TO MAKE IT!!!
The jacket has large sew in snaps for closure.
Instead of making a regular “lining”, as this pattern suggests, I underlined it (the bodice only). Mostly because I am far from home right now and don’t have a lot of fabrics to choose from. But it turned out great and I know this is a jacket I will love to wear.
I made the skirt at easter when my family visited our cabin. It is simply made using the skirt part of my daughters dress pattern https://sewingforfun.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/dress-with-petticoat-092014-111-from-burdastyle-version-2/. A dress pattern can be used in many ways.
