Striped Fall Jacket
Fabric Mart Fabrics that was a steal at 3 yards for $5 last year. I wanted to find a pattern that would show off the stripes, and I found this McCall's 5937 that uses the bias. You can really see it on the back. The only alteration I made was to lengthen it a couple of inches.
The pattern doesn't have a closure, but includes a pattern for a tie-belt. However, my fabric choice was so thick, that the belt just looked bulky, so I opted to add a single button and buttonhole.
I like how how it turned out! I'll probably try to make myself something out of this pattern, but I'd definitely recommend a lighter weight fabric. But, if she doesn't like it, well, I know someone who it fits just perfectly:)
