Yes, this is a jacket from a VERY interesting pattern:
We're making the light beige version on the right. Marcy picked a very appropriate fabric, a charcoal knit with a fair bit of "body." She has the nifty button and frog for it. We still need to sew in the sleeves and turn the huge collar inside to make it a facing. I think it will be very stylish and very comfortable. In fact I like the pattern so well I bought a copy for myself.
We are both puzzled that it's labelled "EASY stitch 'n save" as this pattern is NOT easy at all. I have about 65 years of experience in sewing clothing, but I have to read the pattern carefully to figure out what goes where. Marcy is gone on a Caribbean cruise right now, so there's no progress being made at the moment.
I had a dear friend since High School/College days visiting the last 10 days, and thus didn't have time to sew anyway. This Thursday Dear Son #1 will arrive for a visit. December looks to be as busy as Decembers usually are!
