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.

Am thinking now of using Claire Shaeffer's V8259 sans collar and following the instructions found in Vogue Patterns mag Aug/Sept 2006

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.
