Katrina at Sunshower Quilts
posted a tutorial about making patchwork jackets using a sweater. I just had to try it. I don't like the flowery fabric under the arms. If I had used the blue fabric (just supposing I had any left!) it might have been all right but with the black flowery fabric it is just too busy even for me.
The technique is great though and I am thinking it might work using a sweater with a zipper. I'm not sure what to do with this one. I may finish it and give it to someone as a gift. They'd have to wear it or hurt my feelings. Lol.

I love the stripes down the sleeves and the front.

I sort of see what you mean about the floral bits. But I do love the stripes!
I have just changed to Beta, on your recommendation, & lo! I seem to be able to post comments again.

It is a bit scary really....

I too like the stipes down the sleeves and the front.

You are far braver than me Joyce :)

Give it to someone you don't really like - that'll teach them!!

I've made the beta switch too, and it's great so far! Love the templates :)

Your jacket is really neat! At a quick glance it makes me think of Jospeh's coat of many colors. Very colorful, very fun!

Great jacket Joyce! I'm glad that you were able to finish it from my blog post :) It looks really nice too :)
