When I went on the road trip to Macomb, IL with my peeps last month, one of my purchases was this jacket pattern. I had tried on the store sample, and liked the way it looked and felt. Yesterday I found the beautiful batik behind the pattern at SewSassy in Urbana. I was with my cousins who agreed that the blue would look great with my white hair. Today being a drizzly, rainy day, I decided to dust off my tailoring skills and dive in!
Ta da! The pattern said it would take about 3 hours to complete. It took me a little longer than that, as I always have interuptions! But the directions were well written, and there was NO frog sewing! Woot! It is very light, but will be great for work when I just feel like I want a little jacket to cover up with. I like the shorter sleeves, as I wash my hands constantly and I don't like damp cuffs!
