Estelle Jacket

If you saw my Me Made May 2018 posts, you'll know that I signed up for the Sew My Style sewing challenge hosted by Jessica Lorraine. Each month participants are provided with a discount code for a sewing pattern to sew during that month and then participants share their makes on social media at the end of the month in order to enter to win fabulous prizes.

I ended up skipping the January pattern, the Sunny Dress/ Top, after several participants commented about their struggles with fitting, so I was eager to start off this challenge by making one of the February patterns. I chose the Estelle Ponte Jacket by Style Arc Patterns because I wanted a casual, long jacket and others had said this was a very easy make. I found some reversible distressed stripe Ponte fabric on Stylemaker Fabrics and fell in love! 

The Estelle Jacket was indeed a very easy make. There aren't a lot of instructions for this jacket, but if you're a proficient sewist, you probably can wing it. Since I'm a beginner I followed along with the Maddie Made This sewalong and whipped up this jacket in just a few short hours.

I love this jacket and get complements on it all the time! I highly recommend this pattern and would love to make another sometime down the road. How cute would this be in an ice blue or millennial pink!?
