The Tessuti Patterns Sydney Jacket was hugely popular a couple of years ago. I made one up last year (never blogged) and really liked it, but didn't use the recommended fabric (I used a double faced wool that frays) and almost immediately regretted it. Not this time!
During the Christmas sales I bought this beautiful boiled wool from Tessuti. I cut this out late in March but it was still warm so it sat patiently waiting in a corner of my sewing room. I had a bit of excess energy after getting home from my daughter's netball game late one night this week and decided to start this. Maybe two hours later and this was finished! It's a seriously quick sew that makes a big impact.
My version is a straight medium and I've left off the pockets. I know that I won't use them in this type of jacket and that seriously sped up how quick this was to make. The overlapped seams aren't hard and with no hems this is such a simple, relaxing sew.
