I'm so excited about this project! I got tons of old polyester a while back.  I resolved to find a way to use it other than clothing, at least not clothing worn next to the skin (makes me itch just thinking about it lol).  One thing I decided on is outerwear since polyester is warm, and this way it won't be so itchy.

I made the pattern myself and am very happy with how it turned out. I had a hard time deciding on a collar or a hood, but I think I made the right choice with the collar. Hoods always reek havoc on my flyaway hair anyway. Smiley

I used a decorative stitch on my machine for the top-stitching on the collar and around the bottom.

It's reversible too. The inside is like a melon pink color with lime green top-stitching. I couldn't get a decent picture of it to save my life though. The color is way off! lol

I'd love to hear what y'all think.  Oh, and any tips on getting creases out of polyester would be much appreciated!lol  Thanks for looking and have a good weekend! Smiley

I really like this - it's both cute and practical.
