I was shopping this past weekend and I found the perfect fabric for my jackets at Hancock. It is cotton velvet and it is sturdy enough but not too stiff. I also found V8460 at JoAnn's and picked up two more jacket patterns. Yes, I am a bit obsessed.
The one I am cutting out is McCall 5478. I have plaid wool fabric from my uncle that I am using. It is very cool.
I also started a Christmas gift but that person may read this and I don't want to give anything away.
