JAM #3 In Progress

If you've been following the JAM at Stitcher's Guild, you know there are a lot of beautiful jackets posted already, and this is only the end of February.  Those gals are focused and sewing marathons!

I've worked up the pattern for my JAM #3.  It is an OOP pattern, S2107.  I'm using a soft, pretty yellow poly/rayon fabric, and a tone-on-tone silky for the lining.  And, here it is.

Even though there's another good six weeks left of wintry type weather, I'm going to sew something for spring. Right now.  Doesn't hurt to get a head- start on the next season, especially when one sews at a snail's pace. 

By the way, there's a  new book on the block.  If you like the "Built by Wendy" books, she has a new release.  It's "Coats and Jackets"

I looked this book over at the bookstore.  There are three patterns included:  patterns are for a fitted jacket, a boxy jacket with a raglan sleeve, and a coat.  She shows a lot of ways to change those patterns up to make several versions of each pattern.  I may buy it.  It's worth taking a look.

I love, love, love yellow! Great choice. I think the lining might be too pretty to hide.... can't wait to see the result.
