McCall's 7254 has been in my stash for quite a while and for the life of me I can't figure out why I waited so long to make it. I purchased this super soft French terry from LA Finch fabrics with the idea that I would make a hoodie, but when it came it was a little too soft and lightweight to hold a zipper and this pattern came to mind. It took a few minutes but I dug around my pattern stash until I found it.
If you've never made a jacket before then this pattern is for you for a couple of reasons: it's designed for knits so setting in the sleeve is really easy, the collar and peplum are sewn in one circular seam (what could be easier?) and it's quick! It was start to finish sewing in about 2 hours! If you're new to knits, a ponte knit would be a great (nice and stable) and would be a great weight for the style.
Of course I picked a windy day to take these pics but what do you do? I did end up making a hoodie and I'll be blogging about that soon!
