Pattern: Vogue 8258 (view A)
Size: V8258 comes in sizes S (8-10), M (12-14) & L (16-18) - I made size S.
Fabric: Brown/green/purple silk burnout velvet from Fabricland left over from this dress.
Comments: I have made up this pattern twice before and I liked it very much. It is a simple little jacket that is so easy top pop on over a tank top and look pulled together. Both previous versions were of the shorter variety. This time I decided to attempt the longer view. I wanted something that would fit into a transitional fall wardrobe - lighter in weight but darker in colour and this left over piece of fabric fit the bill.
I used burnout silk velvet for the body of the jacket and brown velvet ribbons for the three bow closures at the front. I enjoy the juxtaposition of elegant, dressy fabrics and notions with relatively simple, casual designs.
Conclusion: I love how flowy and elegant this jacket is when being worn. It is light and comfortable and will be perfect for work. I can certainly see other versions in the future.
