Winterized Jacket

This is the “winterized” version of Simplicity Pattern #4099.

winterized jacket

How did I do it?

  • The inside was lined with fleece. I serging fleece to the individual pieces before constructing the jacket.
  • A zipper was added to the front before attatching the front facing.
  • The mandarine collar was extended so a button closure could be added.
  • The pockets are lined with fleece.

Other details: I had to lengthen the sleeves 3 inches, I had to cut the jacket a size larger to accomodate the bulk of the fleece, there is fleece in the collar and the pocket flaps to make them fit in with the rest of the jacket.
