Short jacket with back pleat

I think I might be in love with the colour of the fabric, and I’m really happy I managed to squeeze out a garment from the 1.5 meters I got my hands on. The result was this short and simple jacket with welt pockets and back pleat. All though I initially called it a winter jacket, I think it would be slightly more appropriate for the upcoming spring. How convenient!

All though the jacket turned out slightly different than what I planned (I don’t think I’ve ever made a garment that did), I look forward to wear it as soon as the spring arrives. I really like the length of it, and I’m happy with how the welt pockets turned out. I tend to have a minimalistic design on my garments, as where the case for this jacket. I hid as many seams as I could, and also made the button holes invisible when I close the jacket. That in mind, I’ll ignore the over-pressed back pleat, and the fact that the collar is somewhat of a happy accident. That’s the charm of homemade fashion, right?

This is the first garment I’ve made on my new sewing machine. I ended up buying a Pfaff Ambition Essential to replace my dear old Pfaff. I don’t mean to speak ill of the dead, but this machine makes it so much more rewarding to sew. For instance; sewing button holes used to be something I dreaded on every project, but with the new Pfaff  it was a pure joy. I really look forward for an opening in my calendar so I could take it out on another spin. I have a blouse all planned out, so I think that will be my next project. Until then!
