A project still in the works. A western styled jacket made from a thrift shop blanket (which was badly damaged). The jacket is made in scrapped together parts, and had no pattern to start with. I based the body shape on a short waisted Civil War era shell jacket, with a wide waist band. Needs the lining fixed, cuffs put on and snaps finished.
