Vogue 8522 in my pattern stash, that I thought looked like it could fit the bill. I decided to make View B which is cropped with a shawl collar.
The jacket was super easy to make. The button in the front is just for show. It really closes with a snap. It is lined edge to edge, so you there is no fussing with hemming both the lining and the outer layers.
It's really comfy, but alas, it doesn't do ANYTHING for my figure type. I think you need a waspy waist to show off this short jacket. It just looks kind of big and baggy and makes my shoulders just slope. But lesson learned.
If I had ONLY made View C- the longer one with the pointed collar, I think I would have liked it a ton better.
You can see in the full length view that the proportions just are off on me. I'm not sure why, but I've tried it with a top and pants combination too, and it wasn't any better.
So, I'm calling it a near-wadder. (A wadder is a failed sewing project that ends up in the trash can). I will keep it to wear around the house when I'm chilly, because I really do love the boucle.
I've had plenty of wadders- mostly due to wrong fabric choice for the pattern or wrong pattern choice for my body, but I still like to try new things and take the risk, because you just never know!
