See and Sew B5550 Jacket
Butterick See and Sew B5550
This jacket was pretty easy to put together, would have been even easier not trying to match a plaid. However; the plaid I used was very easy to get matched up in most places. The fabric is 40% wool 35% silk and 25% linen and wonderful to work with available at Sew Much. It was recommended to dry clean but I hand washed and line dried to pre-shrink and it did okay. I did skip the step of the "vents" at the top of the seam where the sleeve and front meet, I just sewed that seam all the way to the top ignoring the markings and did the same on the facing seams and it turned out great. I will definately make this again but maybe on the 12 the 14 is a little big under the arms.
