I’m not 100% happy with today’s me-made jacket. I’m still in love with its shape but the fabric choice as well as the fit are not to my liking. The fabric is a cotton cotelé which is basically a heavy jersey with an interesting structure. Unfortunately, this fabric attracts lint from a mile away. The pattern is in petite size and I added the missing length at the waist to match my 5’7. Now the length is fine but petite patterns seem to run smaller altogether and that’s why this jacket is a little on the tight side. I might sew this jacket again with a fabric that has endured a lint test and some width added to the dividing seams.
