This jacket has some serious vintage style! Of all the pieces in my SWAP, I think the jacket was the most intimidating for me.
I waffled on the fabric, and finally settled for this stretch cotton. It has a nice weight for a summer jacket, and the color matches my other pieces beautifully. Then, I had to decide about lining. While I tried and tried to find a lining that seemed right, I ended up leaving the majority of the jacket unlined. In the end, I’m happy with that decision. The buttons were a lucky find, as they match the color and style of the jacket pretty well. In fact, these are the only buttons on all of my SWAP sewing that I had to purchase, the rest came out of the button box.
