coats

Is it spring jacket time yet?

‘Cause I’ve got mine! Vogue 8480, a few yards of sandwashed twill, and upholstery thread (ha!) makes quite a nice little jacket. I particularly like the bell sleeves. I’m not terribly enamored of the pockets (not very deep, which means they won’t hold my keys or mp3 player securely) and I wish the pattern included a lining. I especially wish this because it would be fun to line this little coat with quilter’s flannel–something cute that would provide a bit of extra warmth. All things considered, though, I’m really tempted to make this pattern again . . . in lime green or violet.
