Jungle January - Jacket Number 2

I finished another jacket for the Jungle January challenge.


 The pattern I used is Butterick 5616. The fabric is faux alligator print suede. The color is similar to a dark- wash denim with light and dark variations.

.
I made the short white version (A) and made no changes. I did not have to make my usual FBA because this pattern runs a little larger. I interlined it,to give the fabric a little more body.

This pattern is super easy. There was a ton of top stitching,but that's the norm for this type of  jacket. I like using this type of button. All it takes is a hammer and a hard surface. No hand sewing--YIPPEE.


Here is the back.

I will definitely use this pattern again. I can see it in a few different types of prints or a bright solid with some machine embroidery. There are a lot of possibilities.
