knock-off jacket (2)
The first picture is the jacket I want to make for the PR knock-off contest, as I posted earlier. BWOF 11-2006-103 is the jacket I took as starting point. This mainly because of the collar and the puffed sleeve. Otherwise this jacket has not much similarities with the jacket I want to make. After making a muslin this weekend (I'll post a picture later of DD with muslin)I adapted the pattern further.
There was a moment that I regretted my promise, as this was no easy task.
