Brooklyn, New Yo...
My wife has an especial fondness for ugly things and fishies, so when I saw this fabric I had to get it. Needless to say, I forbid her from wearing this jacket when we are together in public.
This is actually just a muslin, I am making her a winter coat which will be out of cotton corduroy. The pattern is Burda 2/2006 #133. This version is a stretch cotton, unlined, with inseam pockets.
The pattern went together very well. I didn’t read the directions so I don’t know if they are good or not, but I had no problems with the pattern. The size was almost perfect, and she is a difficult fit so that is saying a lot.
