I'm so ready to peel off layers and pack away heavy coats! One of my first spring jackets is this awesome military-style from (OOP) Vogue 8301. I've had this pattern for 10 years and I'm just now making it. It's a great thing that I'm such a pattern-a-holic because this style is cyclical and the timing was perfect!
I love a two-piece sleeve for jackets. But when I can't have that, I'll settle for an elbow dart for shaping. This jacket has princess seams, a peplum and lots of topstitching. I made my jacket in a stretch denim from Mood Fabrics and added fab antique silver metal buttons!
