I have (and have had, seemingly forever) a piece of lovely embroidered linen. I am sure I bought it with a project in mind, but the specifics are long gone. I would like a loose, open, boxy (?) jacket for pants or a loose, somewhat fitted, longish dress. Hope the idea comes through! At any rate, any idea for T&T patterns, something unusual, jazzy? I am open to any ideas and pattern companies.
Thanks so much,
Cathy

How about McCall's 6742? If the fabric is light weight?

Cathryn,
I do like that pattern and will look at it when I am out.
Any other thoughts? The fabric is black with demure butterflies...or dragonflies. Anyway, it gives a floaty feeling, but has good body.
Thanks all.

PattyE, nice pattern! It would be intriguing to line up two small buttonholes on both sides where the top button is and close the jacket with a hair pick or something else shaped and sized like a miniature chopstick. It could be lapped and closed, or butted and left open.

I see much more in a pattern that is individually pointed out than I do when I just scroll through the catalogs. Thank you for the link.

......I do have a dragonfly pin waiting patiently to be a closure for just the right fabric.

How about the Lilly Dress from Tessuti Fabrics. I have made 3 of these dresses- all in linen. I get the nicest compliments on them. The last version I adapted to make it sleeveless and added a small ruffled stand up type collar.

The hem detail is particularly flattering to its movement. Downloading and piecing the pattern was not difficult at all. Altering it to fit me (full bust and short) was done easily.

I am glad I rechecked this post, I have an embroidered cotton that has been sitting in my stash and I think this type of jacket would work well. Thanks, I was really stumped with that fabric.
