If you're unsure what I'm talking about:
That's the original, but I'll bet the majority of you know it more from this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28780.0. It's been five years since those brave souls first had a go, and I've always meant to do my own - originally, I postponed doing it because as is, that damn jacket will never fit me. I'm a much better tailor and corsetiere now than I was then, so I think the time has come...to start the John Galliano Pirate Jacket Sewalong Part II.
Anyone with me? I'm planning on doing it anyway, and I'd love to have anyone else who's up for the challenge join me - for motivational purposes, and so we can help each other!!

Absolutley amazing - someone's done a tech drawing of HOW IT GOES TOGETHER. http://www.flickr.com/photos/myblackrainbow/sets/72157600181005967/
So...my muslin's bought, and I'm collecting bits and pieces of what I'll need for the final project. I'm just waiting for my financial aid money to come in so I can afford to print the beast of a pattern out. You (yes, you!) should join me!
