What materials did you use? I used 100% cotton jersey from t-shirts. This project began as a wrap/shawl but I didn't like it. I decided to make a jacket from the "fabric" I had already stitched to make the shawl. I added plain black as I didn't have any more of the gray fabric. I used pearl white Lumiere paint for the stenciling. I like the color but it's a bit stiff to stitch around. I used perle cotton in black and gray to do the stitching. I did herringbone stitch on binding at edges of neck, front and bottom. I have a blog post about the jacket with more info at
