This is a jacket I made over the weekend and finished this week. This is quite possibly the project I am most proud of, thus far - it fits me really well, and I think it looks really professional. The buttonholes are bound and unlike my last attempt, these came out nice and straight. There are 4 front buttons, its just hard to see in the photo


I lined it with some champagne polysatin I had lying around

Here's the pattern


I plan to make a detachable collar out of the faux leopard in the background, and a matching skirt

That's really charming.  I like that you're wearing it with a simple top and jeans (?).  Well done! Kiss

you look so cute in the jacket!
and bound buttonholes are tough - kudos for pulling them off successfully!

i love it. i have magazines from the 50's and they've inspired me so much. i've always been afraid to use vintage patterns though because of sizing.
