I went along to the Fabric-a-brac in April and acquired this lovely reversible fabric, 2.5 metres for just $25! I immediately thought jacket when I saw it and the Cordova was ideal, where I could use both sides of the fabric in the jacket.
I wanted the jacket to be quite close fitting so have chosen to construct a size 6 which has a finished bust of 36, whereas I would usually make a size 8 based on body measurements. I double checked that this would work and made a quick muslin - perfect! Sorry no pictures of that, I was too quick to pull it all part and get started.
