New Look 6735 pinstripe jacket

I made this jacket from the same stretch pinstripe suiting as the trousers, so now have a stretchy comfortable trouser suit.
This could be a good way to make trouser suits for work.
I used the cardigan pattern from my favoiurite pattern of all time, New Look 6735, shortened and without the belt.

I have interfaced the lower section of the front band, so could add buttonholes and buttons in future, I was undecided so left them off for now.

I'm looking forward to wearing this.

Ruthie there are LOTS of cardi patterns out there both from the Big 4 and Indie makers; but I think this one is about as good as it gets. Your pin stripped jacket will get a lot of wear - I'm sure.
