    it is a very classy jacket---could we have a close up look at the back that shows up the seaming --this will never be out of date ---wear it any where you should be proud i bet it wasnt easy to do

    Thanks for your nice comment.....It is not really difficult... I like a challenge,

    I just had to take my time, and think about what the instructions wanted me to do, also made a few notes on my pattern so next time, it will be easier. I am going to make another in pastels and white to take on vacation in the summer. notes I wrote on pattern - eg., I drew vertical lines every 1/2" on the cotton to keep my vertical lines straight, and pressed all seams to one side - which was important, pressing each strip before I sewed on the next strip, and put in a zipper rather than buttons.

    If you are interested - you can obtain the pattern at:
    www.FigureFlatteringQuiltwear.com OR
    [email protected]
    the pattern is called "Midnight Glacier - Bargello Jacket"

    I will attach a pic from the first layout of materials (I laid strips of white paper where I added one strip of material to the next strip, didn't use this piece...hope this gives a little more clarity...Best of Luck

    That sounds like a lot of work but the results also look worth the time and effort. Very smart looking.

    That left over piece looks like the makings of a purse/bag. Love the jacket.

    Trying to figure out the black strip about 2 strips away from zipper. Is that piping, ties hanging down?
