Tweed short jacket

I sewed a jacket.

The jacket is pretty casual and is like a heavier cardigan. I used an wool tweed, which was a gift from Chigu. When she mentioned that she was happily ready to give away the fabric, that she no longer wished to use, to someone who would really like to use it, I was coincidentally looking for an white tweed for this project. Though I was pretending to be calm as a cucumber typing my keyboard, I know my writing asking her to give me was screaming "me-me-me-me, here, please!" in the way of least modestly.

Anyhow, she kindly sent me the fabric. The jacket was finished quite quickly. Chigu, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, I feel just like I owe you hundreds meters of fabrics!

I used a jacket pattern with dolman sleeves from Annee-Patterns. It has a boxy silhouette, which I thought cute in the coarse tweed fabrics. There are elastic bands installed at hem and sleeve ends, which makes the jacket look casual too.

Today we took a walk in the woods and I took an advantage for photo shooting of the jacket. The red and yellow leaves on the trees were magnificent. I hope you're having a beautiful weather too.
