Simplicity 2313, View C.
The hardest part of this was the curved pockets. You have to be pretty exact in your marking to get them to lay right. At first, I cut them out of lining fabric because I thought it would be too bulky to have multiple layers of corduroy right at the abdomen. However, when I sewed them in place, the lining was too visible. So, I went back to the cutting board and made them out of the corduroy. I don't think it is too bulky after all.
For the lining, I used a leftover piece of silk charmeuse in a tropical print. I thought it might make her think of warm sunny places on a chilly day.
Here she is with her proud Papa wearing her new jacket. Can you tell she likes green?
Happy Birthday, Ariana!
