Your reviews have been helpful, as this one is--even without a photo-- and I'm considering making this jacket, utilizing my ample slinky stash. Looks like this pattern will help reduce it. Thanks for the encouragement that I needed.

YOur projects always inspire me to do them Barbara ( I think we have the same build(ish)!. This is next on my list with a EOS knit I have. Looks great on you.

I think the pattern was designed for fleece. Your jacket will be beautiful!

Barbara, I am wanting to make this jacket an outerwear jacket. How do you think fleece would work?

Thanks. I've been debating whether or not to get this pattern and you helped me decide. I need to use up some fabric too, so I'm killing two birds with one stone. I'll let you know how it turn out.

AnneM - I used a polyester/rayon "eyelash" knit purchased last year from Emma One Sock.

I am so honored by your kind compliments! MaryBeth - Johanna's right - this jacket does not require a lining. And it doesn't seem to cry out for one. It's very simple, which for me adds greatly to its appeal.

Beautiful jacket, now I am going to have to get this pattern of CJ's I have several others . I have some sweater knit that would be great.

Great jacket- I made one in chenille knit and made the mistake of putting in the pockets- they really drag it down so I have to serge them off. MaryBeth, it doesn't require a lining- the standup collar in back folds in to make a facing, and that's all it has. Very simple and flattering!

I love it. It looks very flattering on you and I would never guess it takes 2.5yds

Very nice! I hadn't really considered this pattern for myself before. What is your fabric?
MaryBeth said... (2/17/04 6:34 PM) Reply
Lovely color. This fabric required a lining, right? What did you use?

Very nice jacket. Under two hours? It doesn't look it. Nice job.
