This is such a cute staple. I can't wait to see what else you are going to make. And this is a simple jacket to sew. The materials you chose make such a difference. I love the flower pattern.
I love the jacket and would like to make one for myself, but I am unsure about what size pattern to order. I am a modern size 6, but I think the sizing may have been been different in the fifties. I was only able to find sizes 14 and 16 online. Could you give me some advice, please?
I had to use a measuring tape and measured bust, waist, and hips. Then, I looked on the back of the simplicity pattern and found my correct size. Also, most patterns will say bust size on the front of the pattern. Hope that helps. Best of luck and I'd love to see pics.
