I can't believe it's a jacket

Finally, the jacket is complete! It is hard to believe this is complete. When I sew a garment that I have not made before, I record information in a notebook as I sew along. This helps me to remember changes I made to fit the pattern or to change the design, etc. I looked at my notes and realized I started on this jacket in early/mid July. Life and the lack of desire to sew just hindered the progress. I somewhat lost interest in the jacket while sewing it also. But I was bound and determined to finish it today.

Here is one view of the jacket after I sewed on the buttons as the final step. Here is one more view. I like the jacket and think it will look nice with pants or a skirt. Not sure there is another one of these in the future or not. I am glad that the project is over. I am in the mood to make some knit tops. I have a stack of knit fabrics pulled out of the collection to begin.
