{Another} Jalie City Coat 2680 {or two…}

Make 9 Goals by Skirt Fixation for 2021

Do you remember the Jalie City Coat we sewed in olive green stretch twill?  Well, that coat has seen constant wear by me and Allegra and Aria.  So it was time to make one {or two} more.

The only change we made from the last version was to remove 1/2″ width from the shoulders.  I had added 1″ for my very wide shoulders, but it turned out to be too much, and the shoulders stick out the tiniest when being worn.  Not like that has stopped any of us from wearing it all. the. time. however!

As much as I thought it didn’t get much more basic than an olive green tailored military style jacket, I think this one is right up there on the must-have basics too!  Just like the 1st Jalie City Coat 2680 I sewed, I made a hood on this one.

I used the City Coat pattern from Jalie.  Having made it once before, this time was even easier although the instructions were minimal.  Probably my favorite thing about this pattern is how beautifully finished the inside ends being.  Every singe seam is served (or finished) and topstitched down.  It really is a sharp looking jacket.

I love how this jacket has the princess seams down the back as well.  It adds really nice shaping for a jacket and shares your figure from the back as well.  Many jackets have a boxy shape, but not this one.  The sleeves also are pieced, such a nice touch.

Here you can see I’ve styled the Jalie City Coat 2680 with a Union Street Tee, a knee length Salida Skirt, some Mountain Pose Leggings and a pair of Ecco slip on sneakers.

And here you can see I’ve styled it with a Cheyenne Tunic and a Runway Skirt.  The jacket pairs equally well with both…and a whole lot more outfits too!

Another feature of this jacket I really appreciate are the pockets.  They are constructed so well that they are nearly invisible if your hand isn’t in them.  They are inseam pockets on the first princess seam, not the side seam.  That really is the ideal place for a pocket on a jacket, and my favorite.

Now I’ve been teasing you by hinting that I made TWO of these Jalie City Coat 2680 at a time.  And I did!  The other one is the loveliest shade of aubergine, and you’ll have to head over to Minerva to see it.
