What materials did you use? I used a printed denim, medium weight

This was good learning, done on a friend's ancient machine as my own had broken down. The sizing turned out too generous, I'm now making a smaller version. I think I'm going to make it as a sleeveless vest, too!

This is beautiful, I wanted to do a patterned denim, but went for plain in the end as wanted to get started and couldn't find a patterned one, I have since found a patterned denim with smaller flowers. Your jacket is gorgeous you must be very pleased with it.

Thank you for your kind comments! Sadly I cannot wear the jacket, as it turned out too large. I am keeping it until a friend of the right size comes to visit.... Meanwhile I have made another one in a smaller size (different fabric), and I am wearing it right now! I will post a photo when I have time.
