The Little French jacket is not really a French jacket at all, if you have made a French Chanel style jacket or read the many blogs about making one you will know that there is a lot of work involved, many hours, tailoring and quilting not to mention the chain in the bottom. This a much easier option with just a hint of the Chanel style jacket.
I used New Look 6028, this is a very easy jacket to make, the fabric was half price from John Lewis and a nice spotty lining sourced from the internet. The fabric frayed like mad, as I don’t have an overlocker, but I used the overedge foot on my Janome to secure the seam edges.
If you have never made a lined jacket I can recommend this pattern. Its a nice little jacket to wear with jeans or a little back skirt.
