Pattern Review: Butterick 5567 Misses’ Jacket

Threads magazine - 156 – Aug./Sept. 2011
Article Image

Style Tip: Very little fabric is required, so have fun and splurge on a special fabric such as a silk or an oriental brocade.

This review was originally featured in Threads #156 (August/September 2011).

Butterick 5567

A raised neckline or buttoned mandarin collar accents the simple lines of this semifitted, Asian-inspired jacket. Optional waistline darts give just a bit of shaping to its generous sizing. Topstitching makes the darts a lovely design feature. Choose short, cut-on sleeves or slightly bell-shaped, three-quarter sleeves. Instructions are well laid out, accurate, and easy to follow. This project works up quickly, making it rewarding for any level sewer. Fabrics with a soft body, such as linen, brocade, and cottons are recommended. Our tester also suggests silk organza for a light-as-air version and French seams to keep the look clean.

(Sized Misses’ 8-24 for busts 31.5-46 in.)
