Military Style Spring Jacket

Butterick 5927, view D was my starting point. This basic double breasted pattern is very simple and lends itself to achieving the military look I was after.

The cotton duck exterior fabric was very stiff, so I used a variety of harsh laundry techniques to age and soften the fabric. The sleeves are the focal point of the jacket. I carefully combined the upper sleeve of B5927 and the lower sleeve of V1036, eliminating the bell shape at the bottom because I love the seaming detail on the Vogue sleeve. I embroidered Urban Threads #6403 Elven Court Knot Cascade as a monocolor design on the top half of the sleeve prior to assembly. I also added plackets to the shoulders using a shortened version of the back placket pattern. The jacket has a dark green peach skin lining and military style buttons. It is extremely comfortable to wear. All photos are my own.
