  1. Wow! what a gorgeous jacket. I just cut view A last night. This is such a great pattern. I like all the different options with the neckline, sleeves and length…Hope to be done with mine soon…..

  2. Love it! I just bought some of that fabric at Joann’s last week. It’s very Banana Republic to me. I’m thinking of making a skirt with it, though after seeing this post, I kind of wish I had enough to make a jacket!

  3. Thanks for posting this.I love the fabric choice very fun! I just pulled this pattern out of my box from last year. I am planing on making it. Ive never made a jacket. Was that a cotton fabric, and how thick? Thanks
