Simplicity S9047 Woven Jacket with Front Pockets and Belt

Simplicity S9047 Woven Jacket with Pockets and Belt


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.

    This jacket is beautiful and extremely flattering! You should definitely make more! I’m picturing it in hunter green with some knee-high boots! ❤️

    1. It would be great in a hunter green with some cute boots for sure. I may have to steal this idea.
