Second Shacket

I made a second Shacket, say that three times fast! 

This photo makes me so happy with the plaid lining up from back to sleeves.

This time I used a thicker, more substantial flannel form Style Maker Fabrics, which I am sorry to say is sold out.   I did use a bit of a rust shirting also  from Style Maker Fabrics for the under collar, collar band lining and the yoke lining.  I didn't have enough of the plaid and the rust was a nice compliment.  

I did have to piece one side of the button band due to a shortage of fabric, plus this was cut on the bias.

I really like this one so much, it is just a better weight than my first one 

My only change was to alter the hemline, I smoothed out some of the high sides that my original one had.

My buttons came from Style Maker Fabrics, which I ordered when I was working on this shirt.  I need to remember to order buttons when I place my original order.  But in all fairness that would mean, I knew what I was making from the fabric when I placed the order!

I love this with my chunky sweater (from Target) and have a rust hoodie that will be perfect with this shacket.
