Butterick 6253

December 31, 2015

I bought this pattern a couple of weeks ago when Butterick patterns were on sale at Joann’s. I think I bought it because I like the way the model’s chic, short hairdo looked with her turtleneck and flouncy jacket. The flowy silhouette is really not my style, but something about this pattern drew me in.

On the fourth official day of my sewcation, I decided to give this pattern a try. I used some left-over, double-velour Polartec (black) and some pink heathered fleece I found at Joann’s.

The directions tell you to sew  the tiers together with right sides facing up–this means that raw edges will be visible. I’m not too crazy about unfinished raw edges, so I serged the visible edges and then I applied the tiers to one another using my coverstitch machine. I omitted the sleeve cuffs and have not yet found a cord/tie (that I like) for my hood.

I’ve got to do something about the wavy zipper–not sure what’s happening there–but I really do kinda dig this jacket. It’s a complete surprise to me. Flouncy stuff like this usually makes me look super short.

Who knew?? Maybe 2016 will be my year of flowy clothes! Happy New Year everyone!!
