I've made clothes before but never from a pattern but there were some on sale so I thought I'd give it a go.... The jacket was a NewLook pattern but the picture on the packet was pretty hateful so i shortened it, brought the waist in (not enough!) and added a collar. I should have got a picture of the lining, its a deep green.

great job! I know how hard it is to work with vinyl material, so I'm impressed you made a whole jacket out of it Smiley but doesn't it get extremely hot? I made a hat out of vinyl and omg I thought I'd melt...

It's not too hot, though when the sun hits it you start to feel like you're being microwaved! Guess its not one for sunny climes but I ought to add that I live in England so the sun isn't too much of a problem whereas the waterproof-ness of pvc is pretty damn useful! Smiley
