Light Jackets for Those Cooler Days

Disclaimer:  Patterns and pictures that I list or show does not mean I endorse how and what the model wears or displays the garment(s) I mention. My intention is to show the detail of the specific garment I chose to illustrate for the purpose of accommodating and complementing a modest wardrobe.

Posting some interesting jackets and patterns found on etsy by independent pattern makers. This first jacket is ready-made linen and is very simple yet attractive.  I imagine there are patterns one could adapt to make this stylish jacket.  This light jacket would be very versatile in a muted tone and be easily worn with a variety of colors.

Also, denim jackets are a great standby when nothing else will do. Several makers are listed and prices vary.  The major pattern companies also carry a variety of denim styles and sometimes a sale comes  with $1.99 (or close to) prices and that helps keep costs down.  Watch for sales on denim fabric.

There are also Kimono style jackets in the major pattern catalogs.  Those jackets are designed for lightweight fabrics.

View C would be a looser-fit jacket. Leave the pockets off for a more classic look.

These are a few ideas and I am sure there is one that will work best for you, sometimes just a boxy shirt will work such as the light pink on the right and the sleeves can be lengthened even more if wrist length is desired.

So whatever you do, where ever you go, whatever you say, and how you conduct yourself, remember that:

  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
