Well, not really actually... Right now it's snowing again Sad
But at least I'll have a cute jacket to wear once it get's a bit warmer outside!



It's made from McCalls 5758 and with light green cozy Fleece fabric. The pattern consists of 11 pieces and is very unusually constructed, but in the end it came out very cute I think!

The only thing I might change next time is making he facings and the undercollar in a different, less bulky fabric. My serger almost died on me when I tried so serge through all the layers  Roll Eyes

oh wow, that's adorable Smiley and the colour is perfect! Since it's made from fleece, you could probably start wearing it very soon.

That is really cute.  I'd wear it now anyway as a really nice jacket round the house.  Love the color.

That looks fantastic! Because its made of fleece, I think it may even be okay for winter. Great colour too!
