Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl Jacket (reversible)

Last week I made this gorgeous pattern from Make it Perfect.

Uptown Girl Jacket (reversible)

This would have to be one of the easiest patterns I have ever made. A very well written pattern - so easy and straightforward.

Uptown Girl Jacket

I used a gorgeous weight Japanese cord for the outside and then for the inside (it's totally reversible) a Japanese polka dot in pink. (all fabric from here). Pellon is used for the padding. Keely is the lovely little model - she is wearing a Size 2 and she is actually 4 - that's why the sleeves are a little short. I made this jacket for my niece who lives in the US so it will be on it's way very soon to her.

I love this pattern too and your version is so sweet (as is your model!) Do you think it is achievable for someone with no clothes making experience? I am about to give the Make it Perfect wrap skirt a go, fingers crossed!

Kate said...

So excited to have come accross this. I bought that pattern a few months ago and it has sat on my 'to make' pile since then. I'm going to pull it out and have a go. Yours looks great, the fabrics are perfect.
