I just received my shipment from Linton Tweeds to start my Chanel Jacket with and can't find the previous sewalong so I'm starting a new one. Any takers.

You can checkout my fabric here

Wow - you read my mind - I was just looking for that old thread, to see what patterns were suggested.

Love your fabric...how were you able to shop online? (Or did you?) I would love to look through their tweeds, but can't seem to find a listing of them, only the featured fabrics.

Pretty fabric! I'd love to **try** to sew along - my fall/winter goal is making fine jackets!

I would love to join in with this sewalong, but summer is fast approaching here in Oz. I have some beautiful Linton Tweed too. I'll be following along with you, but watching from the sidelines
Have fun..jackets are great projects

Your Linton is gorgeous! I would love to participate but have a big household move coming up this fall. It will be Spring before my Bernina hums again, I fear!

Your fabric is beautiful, I would love a SAL! I'll be using Vogue 7975. Here is my fabric that I have chosen.

You can order from them by sending a swatch request. I always ask for novelty weaves and then if you had a color in mind and then they'll mail them out to you. They are FAST I ordered on monday. Linton Direct

I'm thinking about using the same pattern that Erica B is but I might draft from scratch to ensure I can get the plaid to match. I'll definately have to "deflate" the sleeve ease.

I always say that I'm going to join in on a Sew Along but I always get sidetracked. I read this topic last night and promptly went rummaging through my patterns. I've come up with some possiblities, but now that there is a thunderstorm approaching and I have to get offline, I'll have something to do whilst waiting for the storm to pass. I might even have enough time for a pattern adjustment or two.
