Just keep on using me 'til you use me up

I have worn this jacket pretty much every day that it has been cold for about the last six or seven years.

Needless to say, it is a little worn... Worn out perhaps? I've been avoiding the thought. It feels like the death of a pet to me... really quite a loss, but inevitable. So like anyone I refused to let it happen! Garment Reaper be damned!!!

So Friday I spent tracing each pattern piece in the jacket and drafting pattern pieces from them and Sunday I spent cutting out and sewing a muslin. I'm just so excited about having another perfect jacket I had to share!

And the coolest part is I can make the sleeves longer! The sleeves on few garments ever are long enough for me. I have monkey long arms... Any way, I also thought of making the collar bigger as well. Thoughts?

  1. Maybe a little bigger on the collar so you can see it with a hoodie? Great pictures! So crisp. I can't wait to see the jacket finished.
