There really isn't much to say about this since I used a commercial pattern (this one in fact: http://www.simplicity.com/p-4462-misses-dresses-cynthia-rowley-collection.aspx) and I made it for myself, not much of a story. I swear everyone has this pattern; feel free to show off your completed jacket.

I made it with upholstery fabric I bought on a whim at a local upholstery fabric store.

I don't own this pattern, but I have been admiring people's finished work of it.  Yours looks very modern.  Maybe...

Yeah, I need another pattern like I need a hole in my head.
