San Diego Jacket in Denim

This jacket is an attention-getter! 

The style is uncomplicated and easy to fit.  I love the way the collar frames my face.   Denim is always popular, and wait until you see the embroidery on the back.

I bought the pattern at Distinctive Sewing Supplies with my own hard-earned money and I’m sew glad I did.  I’m going to make another one, in a printed canvas.  Here’s a link in case you want to buy one for yourself.

The embroidery design was purchased on-line at Anitagoodesign, here’s a link.

The San Diego Jacket pattern didn’t include pockets.  I really, really need pockets, so I designed my own.  I added the same unique button-loop as on the front of the jacket, then ordered buttons to cover.  I embroidered flowers from the embroidery design and have unique buttons on my jacket.

I’ve been stopped by total strangers who wanted to know where I got my “awesome jacket”.  It’s a great way of introducing people to the concept of sewing your own clothes.  This jacket was really easy, and yet looks sew complicated.
