Sewaholic Minoru #2

I have needed a second Minoru in my closet since I made my first one a couple of years ago. I wear the polka-dotted one constantly and if people always see me with a jacket on it must seem like I always wear the same thing!
I used a red twill from Mood for the shell and cheap satin-y stuff for the inside.  I like the elastic waist that provides shaping.
The pattern doesn't come with outer pockets so I added them because I think that's a necessity in a jacket.
The pattern does include handy inner pockets though! Back view:
My first Minoru will always be my favorite but it will be nice to have a second version. If you haven't made one yet you definitely should! The pattern is easy and the sewalong is extremely thorough. 


  1. lovely! I really like the waist definition. Great colour choice too!

  2. I made my first minoru about a month ago and I love it! Love the colour on yours.

  3. I just love making a pattern 2x. It always goes so much more smoothly the 2nd time! This is the perfect weight jacket for all the in-between seasons. Great job!
