M7512 01 NancyZieman Jacket 1 2Cooler weather is upon us! My newest pattern with The McCall Pattern Company will keep you fashionable and comfy. Pattern M7512 is a tapered jacket with two unique collar options and sleeve lengths—ideal to wear during three seasons. The fabric I chose to use in both versions is ponte knit, a medium weight fabric that stitches like a woven, but drapes like a knit. Look for the pattern at your favorite retailer or at Nancy’s Notions.

Nancy Zieman's Giveaway Winner

The random winner of a copy of the book, Doll Costume Dress Up by Joan Hinds, compliments of F+W Media is Brenda. She said: I love making costumes! I made an ET costume for my son years ago and several children have worn it since then. My favorites are probably the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood that I made for my two oldest granddaughters. The Little Red Riding Hood costume was easy, but the wolf costume was very hard and it turned out great.

    What a beautiful and flattering jacket. Will have to try to make it.

    I love the jacket, it looks like it would be nice for any figure type.
    I am teaching my daughter-in-law who is from Brazil to sew and she loves our knit materials, once we get past the basics she wants to learn to sew with knits. What a great book for her and I.

    Love this look. Very up to date and I think flattering ti all figure types.

    I prefer the blue neckline on the red long sleeve. I am not a big ruffle person, and definitely not on a swing jacket/coat. If I wore this without being made up, with the ruffles, it would be awful, as ruffles draw attention to that area where they are placed. The other collor is trendy, classic, subdued, and if thought through could be customized to be folded out, halved, or even tucked under if not made with too thick a fabric. Instant change!

    A beautiful design for all types of figures. This would like great on all of us.Thanks for the great design.

    Love the look of this but am baffled by the “knit” fabric. Sounds limpy….I must be missing something.

      I have this pattern and just realized it suggests a Knit!? WHY? I hope Nancy will let us know… since it certainly looks like it would work in a nice weight woven. Disappointed….I have so many great wovens in my stash and too many new patterns are for knits.

          I got the pattern and made it up and just love it!! It went together like a dream.

            Mary Alice, what fabric did you use? And was the pattern sizing good?

          Thanks! I think I will love this jacket!

    This might be nice in a different fabric to use as a top instead of a jacket. I’m definitely interested in finding this pattern to make something new!

  • Karen

    This looks like a really versatile top, lightweight for a leggings top or heavier for a second layer.

    Love the jacket but it is sold out on Nancy’s Notions. Tried to search on Joann Fabric website, but haven’t found the pattern.

    This reminds me of the “topper” or “car coat” of the 50s when I had lots of Mom-made and some made by me, especially out of corduroy. Loved the toppers.

      I think that’s why I love the look of this pattern…reminds me of something that Mom made.

    I made this jacket – view 2 with the high collar – out of a floral fleece and lined it with flannel. I love in NH and am wearing it this winter. It is warmer than my expensive winter coat. Next I make it out of a lighter weight fabric for when the temperatures are a bit warmer. I LOVE it. Rather than button holes, I sewed the buttons to the top where the holes would go and then sewed strong snaps to the inside of the top and to the bottom where the button would go. Quicker and easier to close and open than working with buttons, especially if I am wearing gloves.

      Gretchen,
      Would love to see pictures of your coat!
      I made this pattern out of Ponte and it is a nice spring coat.
