Sew your Kibbe Natural - New Look 6416 jacket in Teal Tweed

I only had 2 metres of this fabric, so had to do a bit of pattern tetris to cut it out.

I ended up with size Large, slightly shorter (5cm) than the mid length, with a belt, but without the patch pockets or a facing. The sleeves were cut on the cross grain.

I plan to overlock all the raw outer edges, roll twice and stitch for a nice finish without the facing.
I still need to cut out the belt carrier, and perhaps some inseam pockets.

Once complete I'll show it on my dressmakers dummy, and then later with me wearing it.

I started with this because it was at the top of the list and I located the pattern without too much searching!
