French Terry Evergreen Jacket


I have been dying to show you this jacket I was working on before Christmas. Sadly, this jacket is not for me, even though it is my size and I am kind of in love with it. I made this jacket for my sister-in-law. Since I drew her name this year, and she had subtly requested one after seeing the one I made for me last winter (See my other Evergreen Jacket here), I knew she would like this one. I think this puts me in the running for best sister-in-law ever. *wink*

This is the Evergreen Jacket* pattern from Hey June* made with solid eggplant french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I LOVE this french terry and it was perfect for this jacket. It is a 95% cotton, 5% spandex, so it breathes, but it's so cozy. It's nice and stretchy with good recovery. I pretty much want to make everything out of this fabric this winter. 






In case you are wondering, I got my zippers from zipperstop, where I was able to order the separating zipper in exact sizes as well as matching zippers for the pockets. 

I did struggle a bit with finding the right interfacing. I auditioned several types before starting and I could not find a knit interfacing that worked well for me. I always have trouble with knit interfacing. Is it just me? I may have to do a whole blog post about it. Anyway, I ended up using this lightweight woven interfacing and it worked great.
