Wow - the fabric really makes the jacket. Very stylish -- just love the pink chenille.

Your jacket turned out really well. A pretty colour too.

Looks like you did a good job on lining it. It is a pretty jacket. I would have never considered the pattern without your review.

I just pulled out McCalls 4494 to make up one of these for my gd -- I've reviewed the skirt, loved it! It comes in sizes 2 - 8.

Thank-you for the nice comments. I did try my jacket on again and yes it is roomier because of the sleeves and also because the front is open on the view I made. I am a B cup, so that is one thing I don't have to deal with.

I've had this pattern in my stash for a long time but I wory about needing to do a FBA. Do you think the dolman sleeves gives extra room in the bust? Your jacket is so cute!

Your chenille idea was great! It's very fashionable both in fabric and color - good job and thanks for this review.

Pretty jacket. Looks so snuggly. Good job on your first lining too!! Looks like you're sewing the "right way" to me.

This was fabric I bought at JA's using a coupon off. Not cheap fabric but I have seen this same type of jacket in the stores for $30.00-$40.00. I have far less in this than that. My GD really likes it and if I can find an unstructured jacket pattern in her size 4-6 kids, I may try one for her too. I have some purple chenille that my husband hates and she loves!

Was this actually a bedspread, or did you purchase new fabric? I've been contemplating the same kind of thing -- the vintage chenille outfits for girls go for BIG bucks on e-bay, and I thought a grown up jacket like this would be fun! Great choice of fabrics, nice review.

Very nice - great use of the fabrics. (Not the best picture of you, & it still looks nice! )

Really nice result, thanks for the review. You mention other fabrics -- I'm thinking maybe a really nice berber fleece?
