I've found patterns similar to this jacket. I imagine if I could alter the pattern peices to this length/shape before I cut and then cut each peice out of jacket material and lining then follow directions, it would work...yes?  Also, what would you suggest for the embelishments? I've found thin cording that  can be sewn down the middle but have never worked with it before.  Is this a machine thing or by hand? I'd appreciate any input. I certainly don't want to pay $187 for it.  thanks!

is there a closeup? i can't see the embellishments well enough to tell if they're embroidered or what.

if you're resizing pattern pieces, i don't see why your plan wouldn't work.  there are a lot of short jacket patterns like that out right now, so i imagine you should be able to find something close (or even something you like better)!

For the embroidery around the edges, I would suggest getting some lace, cut it to the shape and applique it around the bottom of the jacket.  (Put your machine on a tight zigzag and trace around the edges, holding it in place)  Also, I'm not sure what you mean by cording in the middle; it looks like a hook and eye closure to me.  Make sure you clip into the seams when you are doing that slit in the cuff; very easy to get the machine around when clipped, and a bugger when they're not!  Hope any of that helped; feel free to pm me if you have any questions. -Lisa

First I had a plate and no serviette.  Now I have a serviette and no plate and I need more jam.

Looks like buttons on the princess seams and collar.

Watch the placement!
