DIY Unisex Floral Jacket : M7637 Pattern Review + Sporty Chic OOTD

 Ahh, it’s good to be back!

I don’t know if I was inspired by Fall or this floral print, but I when I seen this fabric in the thrift store, I wanted it & I didn’t care what material it was. I immediately imagined it as a sporty jacket with some contrasting trim. Come to find out, it was a curtain! And what better material for a floral jacket…right? Ok, maybe it was a reach, but the end result was quite satisfying. You can’t get rewarded without first taking the risk!

I’m still a tomboy at heart but over the years I’ve matured into a poised (haha, yeah ok!) young woman who uses fashion to express my free-spirited, daring feminine side. So I tried to figure out a way to cross breed the two sporty tomboy & sexy feminine…Sporty Chic? Guess that’s sort of my thing, lol seen here, here, & plenty on my IG.

Check out the shoot & pattern review below!

The Outfit:

DIY unisex floral jacket, Calvin Klein matching sports bra and panty, destroyed boyfriend jeans, and a pair of burgundy stilettos.

Pattern Description: McCall’s 7637 Unisex lined jacket has separating zipper, rib knit trim strips, and pockets.

Pattern Sizing:
I cut the size Small.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yup, better!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, pretty simple for a lined jacket.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love that it’s unisex. I love all of the different variations, can’t wait to make more!

Fabric Used:
I actually used a lot of thrifted material. The base of the floral jacket is a very lightweight curtain of some sort. The blue cuffs are from a medium weight knit shirt & the blue trim on the sleeve is a ponte knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I  added white maxi piping bias tape to give the sleeves a sporty look. It was very time consuming but I’d say worth it in the end.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely, I already have 2 ideas in mind.

What do you guys think? Did I Nail or Fail at the Sporty Chic look?

xxxox,
Que
