SWAP Sewing: Swing Jacket

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.
