Quilted Linen Tamarack Jacket


I finished my jacket just in time to wear it a little bit before we slip into warmer weather. This project was more time consuming then any other piece I have sewn, but it wasn’t any more difficult. The only reason this jacket sat around unfinished for a little while was because I was nervous about the welt pockets, but with the step-by-step tutorial on the Grainline Studio blog there wasn’t any reason to be worried! The only thing I added was a little loop at the back so that I can hang the jacket up on a coat hook (not pictured), but otherwise I made the size 2 with no modifications. I have been wearing it daily since I finished!
