    I haven't tried a jacket yet since my few forays into garment making were.....let's just say "Less than successful".... but I love yours and am now feeling the need to try one! I especially love the angled bottoms of the strips where they meet the black---great little touch that adds a lot! :)

    Can you tell me what pattern you used to make this beautiful jacket? I have a sweatshirt that my sis wants made into a jacket and I love theidea for this one. I would love to try this design. Would appreciate your help.
    Thank You

    Beautiful. At this point in my quilting talent it is not likely I will venture to make one yet. Will bookmark it.

    Just a couple of weeks.

    Once I realised that you stitch all the fabrics in strips -then cut each end at a 45 degree angle, and then sew the top of those strips to the bottom - it makes into a tube, and again cutting at various widths across the tube gives you all the strips for the jacket. Lay the strips onto the jacket (muslin) base, and sew up just like you would to make a normal jacket.

    The pattern didn't have a collar, and no pockets, so I just added those.

    I have had strangers stop and ask me where I got the jacket - very popular.
