I really need to make a basic casual wardrobe capsule and thought I would start with a casual jacket.
This pattern is sized for knits and I am going to use a lightweight polar fleece. I'm not that familiar with sewing knits so I am going to make up a muslin first out of the scraps left over from the warm cosy pants.
I also don't know how Simplicity's sizes work with my shape, so that is another good reason to test the pattern.
Although it's not fun, I traced the pattern pieces in the size I wanted - that way, if I am way off track, I still have the pattern to retrace in another size.

I hope to have this made by early next week, ready to make up the "Real Thing".
Happy Sewing everyone, where ever you are :)
