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!
