The Maryland State Flag looks totally crazy and Galliano.  I say go for it.

If I remember correctly there are two copies of each sleeve piece, one without seam allowance.  I never figured out any reason for the allowance-less ones.

Wow, who knows if this post will even be seen, since the last post made was in June, lol, but it's worth a try.

I'm going to seem like a total cop-out here, but does anyone have, perhaps, a diagram?  Some nice, clear tips, maybe?  What attaches to what?  Embarrassed

I've burned my eyes out scouring the board, and I've started to glaze over a bit.  Okay, more than a bit.

I want this jacket so bad, and I'm generally pretty good at figuring out patterns, but this has got me so frustrated that I'm ready to cry.  Maybe I'm just too much of a novice, and it certainly doesn't help that my machine hates me.

Anyway, someone who's made the jacket - HELP!  Please?  xD

Hey!  Don't panic!  Did you read this whole thread?  Everything we know is here.  Did you print out the pieces yet?  It's much easier to see once they're in front of you and you can move them around.

I don't want to sound like I'm scolding you, but look towards the beginning of the thread.  Go step by step.

I'm happy to answer any specific questions you have, too.

Yeh, I've read almost every page.  I stayed up all night reading the posts, lol.  I've tried, like, eight times to print out the pattern using a different technique each time - including the ones mentioned here - but I just can't seem to nail it, and I'm running out of ink and paper.   Sad

I think I can do this with a little help if I could just get the darn thing printed out.  And I've tried arranging the pieces from the failed print-jobs, and it wasn't so bad...I'll probably need a little help in some areas.  Many of the posts have been mega-helpful, but some things just went right over my head.  I'm afraid I might be too much of a novice to tackle this on my own.  Lips sealed

It definitely seems like I'm going to have to, which sucks because all my money goes to bills, books for college, and my baby, and there's not much left to pay Kinko's $18 to print this for me.  Roll Eyes

Eh.  I'll probably scrounge it up and have it done anyway.  I'm tired of messing around.   Cheesy

Well it's, what, three years later, but I finally got the "in-progress" pictures uploaded...maybe they will be of some interest.  They're not really tutorial-style, so I don't know if they're of any use to someone making this, but maybe?

We start with a bazillion pattern pieces, taking over my room:

Next step is a muslin test.

Then we must cut it out of the flag.

Now we have many pieces, ready for sewing (sort of.)

The flap on the back is completed.

The "basque dos" is constructed.

I am sewing at a feverish pace.

The lining and snaps are all done.  (You can see how weird the shape is when this thing is laid flat in this picture.)

Finally done.

And there you have it.
