by rw9340 01 Nov 2011

This is beautiful would love to have the pattern for it.

jenne by jenne 01 Nov 2011

I just used one of my jacket patterns for it and cut off the hem and the front where it front would come together . added the bias binding almost as you would a quilt but cut that binding at 3" folded it in half and sewed with a 1/4 " seam turned and hand stitched it on the back.

jenne by jenne 01 Nov 2011

This is one of my jacket pattern I just rip the whole sweatshirt apart and used the fabric then cut off the amount you would turn up for a hem and where the front meets together and bias binging and stitch it down as you would a quilt

Oh my gosh...what a beautiful jacket! The binding & cuffs sure don't look easy to me. But you've inspired me to get off my backside (& this PC) and get started on one. Thank you for sharing your photo.
