There are occasions, and I’m sure we’ve all experienced them, when it’s a little too hot to wear a jacket, yet the chill says otherwise!
We need that certain piece of clothing that falls somewhere ‘in between‘.
Well fashion sewers, I’ve sourced two sewing patterns that fit the criteria and it’s now up to YOU which lightweight jacket we make in our next Fashion Sewing Blog sew-along.
As the spring / summer sun begins to set, wrap yourself up in one of these stylish jackets!
ATTENTION EVERYBODY!! – Both jackets are unlined so are very easy to make.
Ideal for any beginner fashion sewer or for a quick sew-along fix!
Our Lightweight Jacket Sewing Patterns
