Polka Dot Minoru

I finally made a Minoru!  I wanted to make this months ago but never got around to it.  It's a good thing I didn't because I recently found this navy and white polka dot polyester fabric online at Mood and it's perfect for this jacket.  It's a nice quality reversible polyester that is easy to press and easy to sew.  I love it!  The top is a size 4.  The midsection is a size 6.  The bottom is a size 2 but I could have gone down to a 0 simply because I'm not pear shaped (not because I'm a size 0).

These is nothing to say about the Minoru that hasn't been said already.  It's a great every day jacket with easy to follow instructions.  I did French seams everywhere but where I attached the collar to the main jacket.  I added inseam pockets using the Burdastyle tutorial and figured out how to sew them with a French seam using Debra Moebes tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew.  My pockets are at a comfortable place for my hands but I should have put them in an inch or so higher because they run into the hem. 

You can see the reversible side on the wrong side of the hood (sort of). 

The back:
The lining is a bright gold polyester satin from Hobby Lobby.

The jacket was completed 48 hours ago and already I've worn it walking my dog Winston.....

...cheering on the KC Chiefs to a victory...

...and hanging out at the pumpkin patch.

Make a Minoru today.  You won't be disappointed!
