Soduko Contest: Butterick 6328

March 1, 2017

My original soduko plan was to  make a shorter wool tweed & pleather skirt and then make a longer matching wool tweed jacket. I thought the short skirt/long jacket combo would be so “fashion forward.” I realize that this combo was probably “fashion forward” more than a few years ago, but I’m a middle-aged lady living in Boonetowne. In my world, this combo is radical. But then my skirt plans fell apart when I couldn’t get the seams in Vogue 9132 to lay flat. New Look 6312 turned out to be a great skirt substitute, but I ended up making a longer–not shorter–skirt. I didn’t think Boonetowne was ready for the long skirt/long jacket combo, so I opted for a short jacket from Butterick 6328.

This pattern is a super easy sew with great lines. I made view A that is actually shown with contrasting sleeves on the pattern envelope.

I love the way the jacket looks with the skirt, and I love the pleather sleeves. I do think I need a purple, not black, long-sleeved t-shirt to wear under the jacket. I might try to make one this weekend. I also need to get my Eleonores sewn this weekend.

Here are a few more pix:

I’ve got big sewing plans for this weekend. I feel like I’ve fallen behind in my contest progress. I also feel like my original soduko plan has undergone quite a few revisions. Is this good or bad??? I guess time will tell!
