Just under the deadline...

My Lined Jacket PR Contest Entry ~ McCall's 5477






















"Misses Lined Jackets: Semi-fitted, lined jacket, hip length has notched or shawl collar, princess seams, bias side front and side back panels, shoulder pads and center back vent; jacket A has seven-eights length sleeves with upper and slightly flared lower section; jackets B and C have long sleeves; jacket B has bias cuffs."
In a nutshell, I **love** this jacket. It will go with my black sateen skirt and pants I made earlier this month, and the fit is awesome. Sorry you can't tell that from these pictures, but I had to make my dressform model, as no one else was available to play photographer!

This jacket is AMAZING!!! I love it! I never looked twice at this pattern because the examples weren't that nice. Yours is so much better! Great choice of fabric to show off the different directions of the design.

Great job on the jacket! I agree w/amanda s., the stripes in the fabric really show off the pattern. Good luck in the contest!

This jacket is fabulous. I love how you manipulated the quasi stripes. Reminds me of some of those fabulous tailored suits you see in the old movies with the stripes going all sorts of directions. Great job!!!
