I finally finished this little jacket for my DGD. It is a size 128 from the spring issue of Ottobre magazine from 2011. The fabric has been well aged in the stash--it is a sweatshirt fleece, but the knit is from selvage to selvage. I think I bought it from a local independent shop which may have purchased factory overruns. Anyway, it worked well enough for me for this design. I also have a skirt cut out to go with this--basically a jeans yoke with a black watch plaid skirt gathered to the yoke. I have had two sewing machines go to the shop since I started construction of the jacket...so it has been a work in progress for quite a while!!!
I am sewing in the JAM group on Stitchers' Guild, and this is my third jacket for 2011. I have a fulled wool jacket cut out for me. That will be jacket #4. Hope I get it finished before the winter in Las Vegas is over! I am using Trydy Jansen Design #301, the Boiled Wool Jacket. It is a princess seamed fitted jacket and I am making a size 12 based on pattern measurements. I hope to make this soon!
