I finally got the jacket I’d been working on done. I feel like it’s been forever, but it was really only about two weeks. There are quite a few pieces to the pattern, but once you get going, it really isn’t hard to sew together.
I made View D, which is the one with a high collar. The fabric is a wool blend coating I bought from LowPriceFabric.com. It’s raspberry wool with a lining to match.
I have to say I really LOVE this jacket. It’s warm (it was in the 30’s when I took these pictures). And the fit is great. I didn’t change anything about the pattern. That’s what I like.
The length of this view was perfect for me. I could see myself making this again using a different view and a different type of fabric. I think this pattern is pretty versatile in that regard.
One more thing, this is a picture of the robe I made at the end of last year. It’s red fleece and very warm and cozy.
I used McCall’s 4320 for this which has been my go-to pattern for robes and pj pants.
