I don't know if anyone is actually working on it, but I sure hope to see another one of these someday.  So many people write "I'm totally going to make this" and that's their only post on craftster, ever.  Don't give up!

I had sworn to myself that I *am* going to make this. And I will, once I have the time and money for sewing... Since I made that promise, I had moved out and started into University.

But looking over this stuff again makes me feel so...

Thanks so much!  I didn't realize until today that I had notification turned off for this topic, so I just discovered your post.

I really love my jacket and have worn it several times since finishing it.  I think I'll make another in the next year or two, but first I've got several other projects waiting in the queue.   Cheesy

I applaud the time and effort it must have taken to make these. Plus they all look fantastic. I would totally wear this if I had one.

I've downloaded the pattern to peek at, but I won't hold my breath as I would first have to figure out how to enlarge it for a roughly 87 cm (34 inch) waist. Not to mention all the other projects on my back burner...

Well, now that school's out, and as long as I have an employee discount at the fabric store, I'll definately be giving this a try.  I have a tendency to get very frustrated and give up on complicated projects, but I've been sewing for a long time now, and this thread seems to address many issues already.  Once I finish the dress pattern I'm working on, I'll try it, although I'll definately have to adjust it, I'm much larger than the model in the picture.
Oh, well.  Lead me to the cheap muslin!

I never did get around to this! After looking at the version with the Union Jack on it, I'm tempted to try one similarly, but using the Maryland state flag. The flag is made up of really cool patterns. And I'm from Maryland. Wink

Do you guys think that would look ok? I found nylon flags on ebay for about $4 each, and I figured I'll need about 2 to get the areas of the flag that I want. I'll probably buy a few yards of a moderately heavy black cotton twill, and something soft to line it. Wink

I've finally started scaling up the design (I printed on 3 A4 sheets because I didn't think my mum would allow me to print 50). I've noticed that the sleeve pieces have two pattern pieces for each piece (ie. two copies of 1C) , so do I need the two copies?
