DIY Jacket Dress – Completed REMAKE!

DIY Jacket Dress – Completed REMAKE!

So you’ve seen how I made mine…. here’s the finished product.

Late to the party?  Check out the posts HERE for how to make this look!

Overall Sentiments:  When comparing this DIY to my first Jacket Dress, adding 2 inches to the length of the bodice really helped to add more comfort to this look.

This time around, I enlisted help from my Periscope friends, I followed the pattern instructions this time around with the gathered wrist band. This added volume to my sleeves and I actually like this look better.

Sidenote:  Have you checked out McCall Pattern Co’s new site??  They’ve made an overhaul of their site and it looks great!

I added some interfacing to the ends of my sash to stabilize the ends.  I also added length to the sash, for more volume.

I used 2 more yards of this fabric,for a total of 6 yards vs the first time I made this look.  I used every bit of fabric both times!

Confession:  I don’t set out to match my prints.  I do me 🙂  And it’s all good!

So another #MadeByMe item has inched its way to my closet.  I’m happy that I stretched myself and documented my process for making this Jacket Dress.  Hopefully, this shows you that you really can make something that you see & inspires you … and how easily it can be done!

I hope you enjoyed the journey!  Please tag me in your pictures online – I’d LOVE to see how you’re stylin’ your Ankara printed Jacket Dresses!
