My Second 1945 Jacket

I thought my black wool crepe jacket would be my all time favorite, but I love my new 1945 jacket. For this jacket, I left off the collar, shortened the sleeve to 3/4's and shortened it. I made my own trim for embellishment and fringe along the edges. This jacket went together so much quicker since I dealt with most of the fitting issues. I still needed to tweak it a little more, so the third jacket will be even faster.

Here it is:


  1. This jacket turned out really cute. I have a 1945 made except for the lining. I don't know why I haven't finished that thing!

  2. Congratulations, Carolyn! Now you have a TNT jacket pattern. I can't wait to see your third jacket.

  3. PS
