    Here's the jacket DD made. Finished it up today :)

    We started out with the jacket pattern found here:
    http://www.sewinggarden.com/patterns..._hooded_jacket

    There's also a children's version here:
    http://www.sewinggarden.com/patterns..._hooded_jacket

    She had a bit of guidance, but did the work herself.
    We had to lengthen it because she's almost 5ft 9 in tall.
    And we decided that the back, which originally called for the horse panel to go all the way to the shoulders, should have a yoke instead.
    Quilted with horseshoes.

    BTW, I'm one proud mama :D

    Yup, lined in red flannel... it's what she wanted

    I know how proud you must be, and I bet your daughter is quite pleased with herself. It thrills me to see young girls interested in sewing apparel. Sewing was my passion for so many years, but daughter and grandgaughter show no interest at all.

    What a great jacket, and because she designed it and made it, it's even more special.

    I love the horseshoe quilting motif. I have that horse fabric. I am going to fussy cut it and make and attic windows quilt. Of course, that's as soon as my ufos are done and I can ever get off reading the board every night! :D

    I totally agree. She did a fantastic job, fabric placements just at right spot...and you even though of quilting with horseshoes. Fantastic. Your daughter must be very excited and proud, as you are.

    Great job, Mom, with your guidance and expertise.
