I've made the vest from this pattern (see this blog under vests-it's the green one). This time I wanted to try the jacket since Marcy had one at DOL Sisters that I loved.
As with most patterns, I like to try it first in a fabric I've picked up for a song. This one is a very stretchy woven I got at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup a couple years ago.
I love the way it turned out. It's a bit roomy so I immediately cut it down to a size 10 for next time. I'm going to wear this jacket a lot. It has everything I like; drapy lines at the side hem, roomy but flattering lines (love the collar and neckline) and two pockets. I could also see it lengthened for a swing coat. And, best of all, it's really easy. It's a keeper.
