The October contest is starting. I have wanted to make a jacket/blazer for awhile. It has been such a long time since I have made one for myself but I need one in my closest. So, what is your favorite pattern? and maybe favorite fabric too?

I bought V8333 based on the buzz here on this board.
I haven't used it yet but apparently the instructions are always very good for Claire Shaeffer patterns.
Otherwise, closer to a blazer pattern but with seaming, would be V8838
I suggest combing through the reviews. Good luck!
