I was in need of a shorter jacket to wear with my new Colette Meringue skirt (and jeans, and capris, and slacks - you get the idea!). This Project Runway inspired pattern, Simplicity 2728, was the answer.

Speaking of lining, I really like the way this pattern has a facing that goes around the entire outer edge of the jacket, so the lining is attached completely to the facing (no messy hemming - well, my hemming is usually messy anyway!). The facing is then sewn onto the outer edges of the jacket. It gives such a nice, clean finished edge around the whole inside of the jacket.
|Before sewing the lining to the facing, part of one side seam in left open for turning.|
