When I made my reversible jacket, Bridgette liked it and asked for one too. No second bidding required! I tried to buy the checked fabric but it was sold out, so I bought the same boiled, foiled wool in a herringbone pattern. Bridgette was still happy with that, so all’s well. This is the “evening” side, with the pockets on the inside.
Heidi appeared to approve as well!
Back view of the jacket showing the “daytime” side. The jacket is Kwik Sew 3952, and I have combined the longer jacket with sleeves.
The darts are sewn on the outside and it has exposed seams, which makes it an easy jacket to make reversible.
Had to show this photo because Heidi is looking pretty adorable!
and another one – sorry!
Details: Pattern is KwikSew 3952 and the fabric is a reversible boiled, foil wool bought on sale (yay!) at Knitwit, Nedlands. Model and recipient is Bridgette with her favourite prop, Heidi.

Great combination of fabrics, I love your sewing – it’s such high quality – very inspiring.
Thank you,I appreciate your comments, but this jacket requires very little skill, believe me!
Fantastic how fabric and a plain-ish jacket can make such a wonderful garment.
Thanks Sharon. I can recommend both the fabric and the pattern.
Love the two new models!
Love the two new models and coat is interesting to.
Jacket looks great (spectaculalar fabric)Bridgette looks good and Heidi is adorable…(can’t you mke something for her too? She looks appreciative… 🙂
Thank Rachel. I made a very complicated thing for Heidi – see http://fadanista.com/2014/07/19/matching-flannos/ 🙂
I love the fabric and it would be great for any simple cut raglan/doelman sleeved top – cuffed pants?? Think the seaming is interesting feature Sue. Bridgette is a lucky duck and the jacket will be a long-term winner for sure.
Hmm, cuffed pants? I have more of this fabric and have been wondering what to do with it. We need to talk!
I like it, I’m all about anything that shines.
Haha! Me too
