8 hours?! I bow down to your skill and patience

Continued thanks and thanks on the washing advice!  Grin

As for the pattern, I do indeed still have it, I'm just not sure how to go about sharing it.... I don't mind at all, it's just that it's made of 16 pieces (each place that there is top stitching is another piece), that I currently have cut out of tissue paper that I drew on.

I also had to make quite a few modifications as I went since my math skills apparently weren't bang on while I was drafting.

If anyone has an easyish way for me to share I'd be happy too... I could photograph the pieces and basic dimensions maybe?

As always thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you guys like it, it's my fav. for sure!

Amazing job!!

And don't worry too much about shrinking - just hang dry it!! (be sure to use fabric softener in the wash tho)
And if you are as OCD as I am you can turn down the spin speed. Smiley
Especially thanks for this! I feel way better!  Grin

So I based this jacket loosely off a jacket I bought my mom that I love!

I made the pattern myself and went to town, and I must say I think this is my favourite piece of all the things I've made.

You can wear the collar like so

or like so.... i love it both ways

Every seam has double top stitching, and the sleeves are made of 3 pieces

And on, fits like a glove, except I'm a total idiot and didn't pre-wash the fabric.  It's a stretchy denim so it will probably shrink  Angry  I think this puppy is going to be dry-cleaned for the rest of its life.

Way 2

and the back

Questions, comments and criticism as always!

hope you're feeling better!
I hit the "this rocks" button when I saw this dress, but I just went back to the post and read the story behind it for the first time!  Made me laugh so hard! I would have done the same thing "my house isn't a storage vault" hahaha. priceless

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it's so sweet  Grin

I love it! That's really gorgeous. How is the lace at the neck attached?

I turned all the appliques upside down and inverted on my dress form and put everything backwards to how I wanted it, and flipped over the choker, then hot glued string from the chocker, across the back of the appliques and then finally to the corset.  It was a slow painful process, but it's sturdy and they stay put in the right spot no matter what I do!
