What materials did you use? Organic cotton jersey with the Magdalena stencil.


What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy yourself! I used a Jalie pattern for the jacket because I loved the pleating at the shoulders and the collar. I basted the jacket together to make sure of fit before stitching and made some pretty major alterations. The arms seemed extremely tight fitting and I wanted them looser and the collar would have been four layers had I followed the pattern, so I cut that in half and only have two layers. I am very pleased with the way it turned out and will make it again.


I agree - lovely!

Very nice! I saw your pattern earlier so it's really fun to see how the jacket looks. It would look so great as a separate with a pink tank and jeans, and it is terrific with the dress. What a versatile piece.

Thank you all for your compliments. Pattiebelle, I think you may get a better idea of the pattern by looking at this link: It's a really easy pattern and works great with the AC techniques.
