Simplicity 1621-The jacket

This is a quick little jacket vest I whipped up this morning from some fabric I got from the free table. It was made even  easier by the fact that I didn't have enough fabric for the sleeves.  Amazingly, Miss Jane was silk screening t-shirts in my sewing room while I was sewing and not only did I finish it but we didn't kill each other either!
Next time, I'd like to make it longer and put the sleeves in it. It should be made with a reversible fabric because most of the time the neck edge/ruffle thing flips over when you're wearing it.


I also made the dress the other day, but out of a completely different fabric. I'll get to that later.


  1. I love it. Is there a difference between the 2 jacket views? One seems to have a fuller front ruffle than the other. I like yours, its the perfect fabric for it. I like the jacket without the sleeves / vest too. Thats a great idea. Here its often too hot for jackets so sleeveless jackets give me food for thought.

    1. The difference in the ruffle has to do with how much you gather up into the casing. I think this pattern has possiblities. I'm going to do some fiddling with it.

    1. It is. I'm going to play around with it a bit more & with some nicer fabric. I think it could be really nice.
