DIY Moto Jacket [Sew What? Series Simplicity Mimi G 8174]

DIY Moto Jacket & Jeans [made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]

Spring has spring and this jacket is perfect! Soooo I had extra fabric left from my Keira Jumpsuit that was posted on the Fabric Mart Blog and I wanted to make some type of jacket with the left-overs. I have everyone of Mimi G's patterns because I love to show my support but more importantly they are nice choices to add to any wardrobe. Now I think I posted all my patterns on IG when I was sorting them and I have to tell ya, I gots a lot of patterns! So although I have all of her patterns I have not made all the garments yet. I first made her coat [Simplicity 1060] and her jeans [Simplicity 8222] and I love that pattern. I also have a few in my to-do pile. I decided to use this pattern because I wanted to make a Moto jacket. I love how this jacket turned out and Mori will be able to dress it up or down.

Pattern: Simplicity 8174
Pattern Sizing: H5 [6-14]  U5 [16-24]
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were.
Fabric Used: Cotton Sateen [Fabric from Fabric Mart]
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes!
Conclusion: This jacket is super cute and who doesn't love a Moto jacket? I was surprised how easy it was to put this together. This was a no fuss no problem project and definitely a pattern to put on your to-make list.

    1. Siobhan, I agree she is lucky and I have to remind her of that most times when I tell her I need to take pictures! But once we get started it usually ends up OK.

  4. I do not know which is lovelier, Mori or the jacket. I love everything you post on here. It takes me back to the 60's 70's a lot of times.

    1. Right, she's one lucky gal but the funny thing is since she is my child I have to keep reminding her of that!

  6. Wow - another total winner! I'm in awe of the imaginative way you combine patterns, fabrics, and sewing skills to come up with beautiful, unique, perfectly-executed garments that vibrate with artistic energy. And of course, the model is gorgeous too, and you can take some credit for that as well!
