The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

So technically this is a UFO because it was started before the theme was announced, but all I had done was cut out the pattern and fabric.

Fabric: umm - op shop twill with added paint stains to navigate.
Pattern: Butterick B5617
Notions: 4 buttons from my stash
Time to complete: ~10 hours
Wear: Yes, when it is a little warmer.

This jacket has a two piece collar and to say I've been boasting about how well I made it is to put it mildly. The instructions were good and it went together like a dream and sits perfectly. YAY
Next time I would add a couple of inches in length, but overall I am happy with how it turned out.

Thank you All :-) A lot of unpicking went into this jacket, but for me that's a good sign. I'm not accepting sloppy work from myself, and I'm not giving up on something just because it didn't go right the first (or even second) time.
