So I decided to finally make something versatile with it, something that I could use on our upcoming trip to the couples' retreat at the Wilds this weekend. It tends to be pretty chilly there this time of year and besides, I don't have many fall clothes. It seems that the closet has been shrinking all my jeans. Ahem. Or maybe Molly is to blame--she is wearing them now. But I digress...I used this pattern that I also bought a few years ago and have never used:
I decided to use a solid pink twill for the lining. It gets wrinkled, but it still looks OK that way anyway. I used vintage white buttons on the corduroy side and buttons covered with the corduroy print on the pink side.
I am planning to post some tutorials, and I'll include a reversible jacket, if I can remember to take pictures as I finish the Christmas one I've got cut out.
