I'm still in the process of picking out a pattern for my jacket- while I really love my "chanel lite" yoked & collared jacket, I'd like to try the classic collarless one. It's going to be black/white tweed with black trim, and so I'm thinking that the collarless style with 3/4 sleeves will work well.
BWOF patterns usually fit me really well, so I'm pretty certain I'll be using one of those. Here are a few choices:
BWOF 12-2007-103 (sans crazy fur collar & cuffs)
03-2008-120 -obviously just the jacket :-)
04-2008-104 A This one is cute, and I could just leave out the zipper. I'm not sure how well all those crazy shapes would work with quilting though.
09-2008-102 -this technical drawing looks pretty blah, but I really like the view of the jacket on the model.
Here's my material- it's from Vera Wang Lavender collection that fabric.com had earlier. It's a really nice thick, soft boucle- mostly black with white threads woven through.
