My skirts are on hold temporarily, but along came the Burda Plaid Jacket Sew Along and I am now I am heading in that direction. I decided to make my jacket from a solid color anti-pill fleece, the solid color was on sale at Jo-Ann at 50% off. The instructions called for 3.4 yards of material which seems like a lot so I will see how much I have left over for another project. After machine washing and drying my fabric, tonight I pinned the first 3 pattern pieces to my fabric. I decided to joined the sew along somewhere around week 2 and week 3. This will be a first for me in two ways, my first Jacket and the first time using a Burda PDF pattern it was really interesting printing it out and taping it together, it was a giant puzzle, lucky I love puzzles.
