I made this jacket in January and gave up getting a good photo. I finally posted the best I had in my PMB album. The fabric is a sweater knit fleece. I used slot buttonholes.

I like that. It looks snug and comfy and still pretty.

I love that color. Would you call it Loden? The total look is sporty but very classic - a nice combination.

Needless to say, I approve! Panel styline gives you a well located seam line for pockets. Very nice!

Really love the jacket and the top posted in your album.
Do you really need fleece in SanDiego?

I usually get by in San Diego with lighter weight sweatshirt fleece or 100 Polartec, but this year has been cold. I can't believe I was comfortable in the jacket yesterday in mid-March. I posted some photos of the seam treatment to show how I reduced the bulk of the fleece. I think it looks better than serged seams on thick fleece.

That's a great looking jacket! What settings did you use? Whatever they are they're perfect!
TIA,

I used a triple zig-zag stitch with a long stitch length and maximum width. I trimmed the seam close to the stitching on the inside. The stitching gives a decorative feature to the fleece.

Thank you. I did a lot of testing because the panel styleline dart drafts based on the hip measurement. I you don't want a extra bust ease like I did for this jacket, you need to draft based on desired bust fit and add to the hip in PE if your hips are larger than bust. Here are my settings. I adjusted for the buttonhole panel in PE. When I get some photos, I'll post what I did for a summer jacket last year that is more fitted.

I want to know, and I think Sue did too, the seam allowances are top-stitched down? Thats what it looks like any way.

Sorry JoAnn, that post sounded demanding and stroppy! Didn't mean too. Sorry again.

I guess I wasn't clear in the above message. Yes, I topstitched the seams down with the triple zig-zag stitch then trimmed to the stitching on the inside. This reduces the bulk and also gives a decorative highlight to the seams.

On the settings I posted above, I forgot to mention that I used a chart with extended shoulder measurements. This gives more ease in the shoulders and back for a loose jacket.
