Here it is–the jacket that took me a month to complete. But it’s finally here and ready to wear. The pattern is McCall 5176, View A. It’s a semi-fitted jacket with darts, princess seams at back and flared sleeves with topstitching details. View A has contrast ruffles at lower edge of jacket and sleeves. The fabric for the jacket is chocolate crushed velvet from Wal-Mart, about $6.00/yd. The lining is brown satin from Hancock Fabrics, $5.99/yd. I bought the button from an independent sewing store in my city called Sew Unique.
Here is the jacket before I put on the sleeves.
Here I am slip-stitching the sleeve lining to the inside of the jacket. It was very tedious and time-consuming 🙁 .
This is an inside view of the lining. I just love the shiny satin!
