Herringbone Jacket – Simplicity 2728

Mother’s Day attire this year was classic black and white.
I notice from this photo that the sleeves were a bit wrinkled.
This was after about 7 hours of wear.
Se la vie     🙂
This is the third time I’ve sewn up Simplicity 2728.
This go round, I decided to add the notched collar
and forego the pockets.

I see why news anchors and individuals on television
don’t wear herringbone.
Photography of said print proves to be a bit tricky.

I like the shorter length of this jacket
as an option to wear with wider leg pants.
The back inverted ‘v’ hem is a nice detail.

The pale pink lining is Bemberg Rayon.
I also plan to wear this version with
white capris and black capris.
A bright tank (such as a fabulous pink)
would add a terrific pop of color.
Hmmmm, I see myself sewing up a new tank in the near future.
What about you, my friends.
Do you make many jackets during the warmer weather?
Or do you concentrate on jackets more during cooler weather?

  1. Very nice job on the jacket! I am looking for this pattern after seeing your version. I am always looking for spring/ summer type jackets to wear to work. Thanks for the inspiration!
