Molly Jacket

A few weeks ago I was lucky enought to win some Violette Field Threads patterns from Lisa at A Spoonful of Sugar. The Molly Jacket had been on my list of things to sew for a while. I had really meant to knit the girls some short sleeved cardigans for summer as it can a bit chilly down here in summer, but knitting takes forever compared to sewing. The Molly Jacket is the perfect alternative. I used some light weight denim and lined it with a red and pink spot that Amelia chose. I made a size 5/6 for her and added about 3/4 inch in length. I would add a little more next time. I chopped about 3/4 inch off the sleeve length as it was a little long.
I only had one big red button so that is all I used. I would like to make this again with three buttons and I will definitely make this again. It is a great pattern that went together really easily with easy to follow instructions.
