Can you believe it?

My DH is taking me out on a (long overdue!) date tonight, and I really wanted to wear my jacket, so I have been hand sewing like a mad fiend for the last 2 days, but I did it! It's done!
And my chain, of course. I took Digs tip and bought it at Home Depot, and it is great! I really love my jacket. Next time, I'll do it up right, but I'm still happy with my first lined jacket. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to sew along with the wonderful group. The inspiration and help has really been invaluable to me on this journey.

Thank you!!


  1. That looks fantastic! What a gorgeous jacket!! Wonderful work.

  2. It looks great!!! Nice job. Inspires me to try, to not worry about staying to the letter of the law on constructing a Chanel-style jacket, etc.

  3. Wonderful! The fabric's beautiful, the fit's great, the trim a perfect match. Enjoy the date!

  4. Looks great ! Hope you get lots of wear out of it - beautiful fit and finish.

  5. I KNOW THAT FEELING, and it is great! Love your jacket, it looks so professionally made - like RTW. Congrats
