Here's a really cute jacket with some really bad pictures. Its gotta be one of my favorite things I've made Elisa. I'm sad that it won't fit her next winter season. I got the fabric so ridiculously cheap; I don't know if I'll ever be able to make another jacket this cheap again! The outside is a plastic suede that I found as a remnant at Joannes for a couple bucks. The lining (which is darling but you can't see it in these pictures) is flannel in rainbow stars print. I think I paid about a dollar for it at Joannes at their black Friday sale.
Anyway, I used Violette Field Thread's Molly Jacket pattern as a guide for this jacket. I originally left the collar off; but then I looked at it and decided it needed a collar after all. Collars are definitely not meant to be add-ons. Oh well, the awkward laying and slight pulling of the collar isn't too noticeable, thankfully. I also added a belt which I think just makes the jacket! I happened to have a round metal thingy (I think I bought them for a purse that I made several years ago) and it worked out just perfect for this project. Elisa really liked this jacket and she got a lot of compliments while wearing it out!
