Jalie 2679: x2

In the past two weeks I finished 2 jackets made from Jalie 2679 (Women's Sport Jacket). One is in charcoal corduroy and the other is in blue soft shell.I've made this pattern quite a few times, but not for a couple of years. The last time I made the pattern, my jacket was stolen from the back seat of my car (!). I think the reason it caught the desire of a thief is this: a novice can put this pattern together easily and have darn good results. Professional, in fact.

The pattern pieces fit together among the best of any patterns I have made. The only tweak is that I would say that the collar usually need to be cut out and inch or two longer than the pattern calls for.

I wish Jalie made more than mainly active wear. I haven't tried their other patterns, though I have heard rave reviews on their jean pattern. If they are 3/4 as good as this one, I definitely want to try them out!

What a fabulous jacket! I like how different it looks, when made with the different fabrics.
