Pattern Review: Butterick 5393 Jacket

Threads #153, Feb./March 2011

Style Tip: Showcase unusual buttons on this jacket against a solid fabric.

This review was originally featured in Threads #153 (February/March 2011).

Butterick 5393

Stroll stylishly from winter into spring in this lined jacket with multiple vertical seams on the front and back. The silhouette is fitted through the waist, with box pleats that form the peplum. There are various collar versions, including an oversized roll and a narrow and flat surplice style, fitting closer to the neck. The sleeve designs include traditional, three-quarter bell, and balloon with cuff pleats. For wearing comfort, our tester recommends adding elbow ease to the narrow sleeve.

(Sized Misses’ 6-20 for busts 30.5-42 in.)

Style Tip: Showcase unusual buttons on this jacket against a solid fabric.
