Short jacket for the bee pencil skirt - Lekala 4108

Lekala 4108
The skirt for the 1st round of be turned out better then I anticipated and I decided to try an make a simple jacket for it as well to have more options on wearing it. I had not much fabric left so it had to be a tiny one. I remembered I had Lekala 4018 printed a while ago and decided to cut it out and try it.
It went together rather fast and easy. I eliminated the back seam - I think someone told me a while back that is needed for structure but if there is no shaping involved or back closure I like to eliminated that back seam.

I used the remaining polka dot fabric for lining it.

Since last I counted I have bought 5 new fabrics ( polka dot lining being one of them ) and only posted 3 new finished garments so my debt is going higher to 164.

  1. This is such a cute little jacket. I think the no back seam makes for a cleaner look with the stripes and the suit is so fun and a fresh look in the stripes! I'm with you on the stash debt. I was doing some great stashbusting this last week and then the boutique that I sew for contacted me to make some dresses. I'm sitting on a pile of fabric now that has to be made now! A happy problem I suppose.

  2. Thank you! This was one of the fabrics I bought without having anything in mind for it! But the quality and price were really good so I had to have it. I think stripes are becoming my favorite print since it is so easy to create unique looks with them! Good luck with your dresses! I am sewing dresses for an event this weekend myself for me and Eva!
