When Stitcher's Guild started the Jacket a Month thread, I thought it would be fun reading. I had no idea it would lead to this! Me stitching two jackets in less than a month? Who is this person?! I do not have any visions of actually making one a month, but two by 2/1 is definately a sign that I may be emerging from this funk.
Here's what I did.
Pattern: Butterick See & Sew 3625, cut size 14 with no alterations. There are only 4 pieces: Sleeve, Fronts, Back and Hood.
Special touches: The hook and eye tape closure inspired by Robin at a Little Sewing On the Side, purchased at Sew Expo in Puyallup WA in Feb 2010.
The fall leave embroidery from Martha Pullen's Mini-Collection stitched on a little patch on the back, visible only when the hood is up, inspired by my favorite winter Woolrich sweater. I love the idea of a hidden surprise.
Off to see what I can whip up next!
