Close to 30 years ago I made one by sewing strips of fabric onto a men’s dress shirt. So no pictures. Can’t remember where I got the idea. I made it for me but never wore it much so moved it to my mom’s house and sh enjoyed wearing it.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]619419[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]619420[/ATTACH]I just love this jacket. I bought this 21 years ago and have just about worm it out. The pattern came from Lolly's and whoever made it (not me) embellished it with lace, lamae and buttons. I've tried and failed to recreate it.

It wasn't a published pattern. The instructor had paper patterns (on butcher paper I think) for several different sizes. We copied her patterns and she helped us adjust things like sleeve length.

Jacket Jazz and Jacket Jazz Encore are two different books by Judy Murrah. I took a class with her years ago and made a jacket and I have another one started, but I keep looking at it and thinking it's really not something I would wear anymore! I don't wear the original one because now it's (cough cough) a little too small....

I have made a lot of them. I'm not sure I have an photos on this computer. I may have to wait to post photos until I get home. My best advice on pattern is something simple with simple lines. Let your piecing/applique/quilting be the focal point. Don't use batting. You always end up looking fat when you use batting. I use flannel in some jackets, others I piece directly on to a twill backing.

I don't have pics here, but here's a thread on one jacket I made Spice Market Jacket

And here's another D9P Jacket

When I make a piece of clothing that's pieced. I cut whatever base fabric I'm going to use (flannel or twill) to shape and then place it on the design wall. I make my blocks and place them on the backing to shape. That way I don't end up making a lot of blocks that are just cut off. I have even use small pieces I cut off the block on one part to fill in a small place on another part. It saves a lot of time and work that way.

I made this one around 2001/2002. A quilt shop was having a class on it & my friend talked me into taking it. Since I'm not good with color selections, I saw a finished one in the shop with this color theme so I went with it. Some day I would like to make one that I could wear more "year round". I start wearing this one in November & keep wearing it through the middle of January & get lots of compliments on it. You make it with fat quarters, muslin for the "batting" and a lining. I put two little square pockets on the inside of each side as I need pockets in everything I wear. It looks great with anything from jeans to nice black skirts.

I have made 2 pieced and quilted neck ties for my husband. I am in the process of figuring out a way to make myself a shirt that will have pieced and quilted elements (also a skirt that has elements but not fully quilted) It is not far enough along for actual pictures yet though.
