1930s Butterick jacket 5542
I found the perfect cross-dyed blue and white linen to go with Art Deco-era buttons I found in an antique shop in Edinburgh, Scotland. I paired them in an Art Deco-era jacket, Butterick 5542. I described the construction of this jacket in my blog, Getting Things Sewn. See http://gettingthingssewn.com/project-butterick-5542-1930s-jacket-part-8/
I would like to try the sleeveless version sometime in a linen for summer "smart casual"-style dressing.
I underlined the main pieces with silk organdy to reduce wrinkling in this linen.
I made bound buttonholes, but positioned the top one a little above the roll line. I'll know better next time.
I inserted flat piping into the facing-lining seam.
Showing off the red contrast flat piping. The skirt is a contemporary McCall's pattern with a faced waist.
