    My mom recently received a box of drapery samples and gave me a bundle of black and white prints to "create" something with. I decided on a jacket. Now she wants one in blue!

    I used a pattern from Clotilde, Town and Country Jacket I think. My sister borrowed the pattern and I haven't gotten it back yet. I used flannel for the batting and a lightweight lining. It is quite heavy with all the fabric seams so I would not use the flannel next time!

    There are flanges between the rows of patches, so I cut binding to go around the edges to match the flanges. I am still looking for the "perfect" button so for now I put a hook and eye to keep it one the hanger!

    Wow, it looks like a very expensive designer (of which you are) original.

    I think a frog closure would look good. IMHO

    I have thought about getting one of the magnetic clasps for necklaces and using instead of a button, look at JoAnn's there are some darling clasps with real stones.

    That is a very nice jacket. With the flannel, maybe you can wear it in the cooler weather. Does it get cool in Modesto?

    That's very pretty! You did a great job! I'm going to look for this pattern - I really like it.

    Do you think the weight may also come from the drapery fabric? Once I used some leftover drapery fabric and made a lap quilt. It is so heavy that no one ever uses it! I think on mine, the weight comes from the drapery fabric, and also the fact that I used it for both the lining and top, so double the weight for it. I bet I don't do that again :)
