This Simplicity S9047 pattern was a very rewarding make for me. I have had this pattern for a while with hopes of finally making it. Initially, I intended to use a denim fabric like the front of the pattern, but decided to use a woven home decor fabric I purchased from our local Joann’s. I like this fabric because of the beautiful colors, the flowers and the weight.
I cut a size medium, View A. The process was a little long and perhaps a little tedious, because it included 4 pockets, buttons, button holes, gathered sleeves and a belt. But it’s so freaking cute though.
I would not necessarily call this an easy pattern, because of all the steps and details, but it would be a good pattern if you want to improve some skills. The pockets are what I really like about this jacket, especially the lower ones. The breast pockets can be used for your sunglasses, or whatever else you need to hold. But honestly, what I really like about this jacket, is the fabric, which has nothing to do with the pattern. [sheepish smile].
I felt so good in this. I am calling it a jacket but honestly, I really wore it like a shirt. I think it made me look slimmer, which is a plus for me. I believe this style works for all body types, especially because the belt cinches the waist.
Bottom line. Loved it for so many reasons, and I believe you will too should you decide to try this pattern.
God is love. Love is good.
