Hot! MTL: The Peggy Jacket

Apologies for not getting a Make This Look up yesterday. In the battle between much needed rest and posting to The Sew Weekly, rest won. Today's look may not suit everyone, but I find something very appealing about a busy print jacket. I've actually used this fabric before but when I bought it, it was only $1.95 a yard. Be sure to pick up some lining fabric to give it more structure!


Original Inspiration



  • Instead of doing a waist tie as the pattern indicates, you can make a fabric belt to use as a waist tie.
