This weather calls for a new summer jacket for big rascal since he has really outgrown the study hall jacket I made him last year (luckily it fits little rascal perfectly, so that jacket has been given a second life). I decided on making another study hall jacket (pattern by Andrea Pannell for go to patterns) with a minor adjustment to the length, this time I added a couple of centimetres because last years jacket was just a little on the short side.
Somehow sewing just didn't agree with me today. I had trouble with the waistband and the zipper but I really wanted to finish it. It's time to put the winterjackets away. From the pictures you can tell the waistband is still pulling the fabric a bit in the corners.
So not a perfect sew but I do love it, especially the fabric combination! The grey, the stripes and a white flannel lining inside. The grey fabric is an old curtains from my sister, so another point for upcycling!
And rascal? Well he can easily play in it, so all is well!
