    I tripped across the book Start with a sweatshirt: sew a stylish jacket by Nancie M. Wiseman last fall.

    In the general topics on this board, someone pointed to the "1000's of bolts, one crazy nut" as a reputable on-line vendor of fabric. I wanted to start quilting but wanted to try my walking foot on a less sizable, more manageable (for me) project. And so, here is the result of that mash up. This was a present for my mom for her birthday. Well, she taught me to sew afterall ...

    Note, I used a commercial sewing pattern neckline to modify the sweatshirt.

    Love your jacket. It's got simple piecing and nice decorative stitching. Looks great with the white blouse. Great look to wear with just about anything.

    Your Mom will get a lot of wear out of that jacket. It has so many colors in it. It is beautiful!
    Nice job!
