I needed an escape from reality and to try and get back into my sewing grove, so I made myself a fun jacket. Now that the weather will be getting cooler, I'll be able to wear this jacket soon. I used fabrics from my stash which include Knitorious Fabrics "Vivid Floral Wars" with the character heads, and the coordinating lightsabers print, black rib knit, black casa crepe back satin, purple cotton sateen, and a wide satin zipper. I have no clue where the purple sateen and the zipper came from, I've had them in my stash forever. I love that the pattern has an included lining as well as pockets. Too many times I've had to draft a lining for jackets because the pattern didn't call for one.

Beautiful and unique!  The lining really is a flash of class!  Looks great on you, too!  I am sure you will be able to wear this a lot!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
