So glad to finally publish this project! I have been longing for the Minoru Jacket pattern by Sewaholic for weeks, especially, after I saw what beautiful creations Anna of Paunnet and Novita of VeryPurplePerson as pattern testers came up with!
I chose a camel beige colored linen-cotton blend for my version and am very, very happy with that.
Actually, this was the first time I tried a pattern from Sewaholic and I have to say that I am very pleased with the whole pattern and instructions. Though this jacket scared me at first (zipper on the front, zipper on the collar, hidden hood, lining, lots of topstitching, etc.) the steps were so perfectly well explained, that this jacket almost evolved on its own.
As a little eye-catcher I decided to use a floral cotton as lining fabric, but turned to normal plain lining fabric for the sleeves, in order to make them more slippery when putting the jacket on.
So if you were thinking about whether to try this pattern, too, I can only recommend it. It is definitely a lot of work, but it totally pays off.
Have a lovely day and take care everybody!
