November MAGAM Determined

The theme for November's Make a Garment a Month is "Natural".  My garment is going to be a wool jacket using Simplicity 1320 and a jacket I pinned awhile ago on Pinterest as my inspiration.

Here's the Pin:

I'll use Simplicity 1320 as my pattern, View A:

And here's my selection of fabrics - both of them wools from the stash.  This is an unlined jacket, but I'll add a lining to it.  Linings make a jacket so much easier to get off and on I think.

I'm pretty sure I purchased the felted piece at Joann's a few years ago and the plain black has been in the stash for awhile too.  They will make a great jacket when paired together.  Now I just need to find some buttons that will work!

Happy sewing everyone!
