Thanks for uploading on the Projects Page!
I'm pretty internet savvy but new to Craftsy so just learning my way around. Thanks for the suggestion. Didn't realize the Projects Page was "outside" of the class pages.
b-Just love the look of this jacket! Can you tell us who the pattern designer / publisher of the pattern is? I would like to try this one .
Thanks for the comment, kquilter. I've made 5 or 6 of this particular jacket and love, love, love the pattern. You can order it online at http://www.petitepluspatterns.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=202. I've tried several others and they have all been wonderful. Petite Plus patterns are designed with a D cup so less altering is required. They are easy to lengthen for taller plus sizes too. There's also a DVD on how to make this jacket and it is great, although I use a combination of methods, including some from the Jackets for Real People DVD from Palmer/Pletsch with Marta Alto (buy it here: http://www.palmerpletsch.com/dvd-videos.htm). Palmer/Pletsch also sells the jacket interfacing I recommend on this site. It's the best I've used.
