I found an old blanket that belonged to my boyfriend that had obviously not been used.  It was staring at me for days just begging to be loved and used.  Then it came to me that it needed to become my fall jacket!  I found this cool pattern, whipped out a few good needles and put the petal to the metal, and got a jacket.  Hope you love it as much as I do.  It's very flattering on and looks better on me than it does on the floor crumpled up as a blanket.  I'm adding the buttons this week.  Grin

Ooh that looks nice! It's great to be able to give things a new life and purpose. Is that  the Simplicity 2808 pattern? It looks just like it, got it yesterday. If so, how was it to make?

I was wondering the same thing.  I've been eyeing that pattern myself.  It looks great!!

Thank you all for your nice comments.  Yes, this is the Simplicity 2808 pettern.  I thought that maybe I should post this in the sewing section, but I felt that it was reconstructed also.  The pattern was terrific and easy to sew.  I plan on doing another one soon.  You may want to do a review of the pattern to see what others said, but I found a discreptancy in the pattern: they forgot a step and made the step after that a bit confusing.  It's in the collar section, so just be aware.  Once you figure it out (or if you've sewn collars before) than you should be able to figure it out pretty quickly.  You can message me if you get stuck and I'll guide you through it.  Good luck.

Wow.  I love this.  Just love it.  It's a great fabric for fall and the pattern is very nice.  Kudos to you.
