So this is the jacket I started working on in Spring 2011 - now, the day before my birthday (Oct 8), I finally finished it. It is the same EXACT jacket pictured on the cover of the pattern of Simplicity Lisette 2209:
I usually don't copy the exact design (I mean really, isn't that the point of making your own clothes) but this jacket was so cute. I love yellow - so happy!
So why did it take so long? After several frustrating attempts at sewing the collar on the right way (not upside down or inside out - not sure what was wrong with me that day) I quit on it.
Had I looked at the directions, I would have realized that all I needed to do to complete the jacket was add the button. ONE BUTTON! Not even button holes. Anyhow, I finally finished it and here it is :)
