This is a round tu it project I have been going to get round and it is done. I went to get a sweatshirt to do this and did not find. I ended up cutting fleece and sewing patches to fleece making jacket pattern. I lined jacket with cotton lining. A cutie helped suggesting matching fabric buttons. I was thinking of using snaps but on this they would be too small and take away from the fabric. The fabric is from my upholstery fabric stash that I hope to use more of it up this winter season. This is a good winter start and this is a warm jacket.

Wow! I can see where you've been for a while. Takes a long time cutting and piecing and stitching. This is fabulous. It will be nice a warm and you'll be getting a lot of compliments when you wear it out. Yours is probably perfectly sewn together. Have you ever cut a bought sweatshirt apart?? Crooked everywhere. They always have to be trimmed up to match. Those fabrics are very pretty also. Goes together so well.

It is Beautiful!!! You did a great job!!!

I'd have to make a matching brown or black tote (book) bag with patchy edges around the top. But, it probably would take away from your designer look!

by karenalice 02 Nov 2015

Stunning! Must have taken you ages to plan and complete!

by graceandham 02 Nov 2015

It's beautiful. I think this is a "ladies to lunch" jacket. I'm impressed I even know someone who made this - well, I don't know you, but you know what I mean. You'll have and wear this forever.

It is lovely!
I am not sure it is my size -- but I could lose/gain weight! ;)

highlandermom by highlandermom 01 Nov 2015

Thank you as I smile over the gain/lose. I have been fighting to lose. Problem is one part wants to be old the other don't. Wish the old part would leave me alone so I could lose it faster.
