The ‘Kingston jacket’ is available in sizes doll (yes dolly) NB – 12 and ladies XXS – 5XL and wait it is perfect for boys too so they don’t miss out on the perfect coolest jacket around.
I do like to get dressed up every now and then as l am sure other ladies do, not only is it a bit of fun but it is nice to feel a little elegant and special. This is exactly how l felt when l finished my ‘Kingston jacket’ designed by ‘Mummykins and Me’ by Rebecca Page. The original design posted for testing was for a denim jacket, well l don’t wear jeans a lot so was unsure how l could create the jacket to my style.
With options for added sleeves to the jacket this certainly changed the options immensely. This is a win for me as it gave me the opportunity to create something special more to my style and that l can wear for a more formal occasion or match up to my jeans when l want a something a little more casual.
I love my angel sleeve option, this enabled me to create a more formal jacket which is so comfy. The instructions do allow you to create a genuine denim jacket style with top stitching on all those seams, long sleeves with cuffs and the waistband with tabs and pockets of course. For my more formal jacket l didn’t put on the pockets but l did put on some sparkly buttons just because l could. The stylish paneled jacket creates a lovely stylish fit for any lady.
The back of the jacket whoo hoo l love it, sits beautifully on the booty. The ‘Kingston jacket’ may sound and look complex but it truly isn’t. You can completely choose all the options or a more simplified version to suit your style. There were a few ladies testing this pattern that chose all the options and created some amazing jackets and they initially thought that creating this jacket was well and truly out of their comfort zone. The instructions and pics in the tutorial for the pattern are typical ‘Mummykins and Me’ style, easy to understand instructions enabling all seamstresses to create something beautiful.
For my more casual style l can still wear my formal jacket with jeans and still feel pretty darn cool at the same time.
