All but the snaps

The jacket is now complete except for sewing on the snaps.  I decided I wanted to try to cover them.  I need to practice this; so I need to pull up a couple of bookmarked blog postings that others have so nicely shared on how to do this. So for now taking breather.

Here are some photos of the completed jacket-front viewFront view-completed

My first jacket for 2011.  A nice and rather easy jacket to sew to start the Jacket a Month.


  1. Linda, your jacket is so cute. The pattern is interesting, and you made it even more so by your choice of fabric. Great job!


  2. Linda - this is a cute jacket. What do you plan on wearing with it?

  3. I really like the jacket. I will have to get the pattern.
