Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing

What materials did you use? When I went to the store to buy fabric for this project nothing "spoke" to me so I ended up with a patterned stretchy denim. It was ok to work with.

What are you most proud of? The topstitching looks pretty good. I had to rip out quite a bit of it because I was not satisfied with sections. Having a walking foot helped keep the stitches even.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hunt until you find a fabric you like and want to wear. Don't be afraid to rip out stitches if you don't the results. Think about arm and body length. Are you tall or do you have long arms.

i hear you about fabric choice! But I have decided to "settle" on one or two in my stash. Having said that, I love your jacket. You did a great job and as you do wear jeans it looks like you will get a lot of wear out of it. Looks store bought to me!

Be careful when taking photos of your garment if you don't want it (and you) to look distorted. Use a "landscape" (wider than taller) photo. Using the tall photos distorted the images. The one photo with the dog in it is not widened.

Great job! Love the added touch of simple embroidery. Thank you for sharing!!

No traditional embroidery but I glued on some metal embellishments. I have been complemented on the light blue topstitching which is echoed in the fine blue striped fabric.
