Today I am back on the Minerva Blogger Network with a new project. After having lusted for the Sienna Maker Jacket from Closet Core Patterns for a while, it finally made it to the top of my sewing list. I had fun working with this pattern.
To break all that cobalt blue twill I chose to use in my jacket, I selected 9 black and white buttons I already had in my stash and for the back facing, I used a sewing themed leftover fabric. Unfortunately, I did not have enough for the sleeve pockets lining so I used some fat quarters instead.

Pattern: Sienna Maker Jacket* from Closet Core Patterns*- Sienna is a chic utility jacket inspired by vintage French workwear. Designed for hard-wearing use by makers and artists, it functions as both stylish outerwear and a highly practical layer for use inside the studio. With a slightly dropped shoulder, Sienna features a crisp notched collar which can be worn buttoned at the neck with an optional snap button. It is unlined and finished with durable seams. Views A & B feature deep hip pockets, a hidden breast pocket and waist-cinching belt with D ring closure that can be worn closed, or open by looping the belt in the opposite direction; View A hits at mid-thigh and View B ends at the upper thigh. View C is a short chore jacket with button closure, optional sleeve pockets and a back button placket.
