Kwik Sew UFO - done

I made this jacket years ago....not even sure what year it was.  Never finished it....I don't remember why...I'm too much of a perfectionist I guess.....  But I was going through my stash yesterday, saw it, tried it on again.....finished it.  Still not sure if I'll ever wear it. It's first Kwik Sew pattern I've ever made and I loved the white heavy paper pattern instructions.

Hancock Fabrics used to be in my town years ago and I miss them terribly.  ;(   The sales clerk at the time told me the taxes were too high in New York to keep them open.  Gee, what a surprise.

I bought this jean fabric that has a green tint inside..This pic doesn't do it justice.  It really is quite pretty.  I just cut out the facings using the inside of the fabric as the main color. 
I do need to work on my photo skills.   I found green buttons in my humongous button stash and finished it off Sunday.
Both these pics were taken this morning, but each room shows the jacket differently.  But in this pic you can see the large set in pocket, just off the side seam.

I love denim, any color. That's a great jacket. You should enjoy wearing it, just in time for spring.

You seem to love the color green and I guess I do too since my last purchased arrived with a box full of green in it! But at $1.00 per yard I could not turn down the sour apple green knit (Fabric Mart)and bought lots of it. Your set in pocket looks great and I am looking forward to the next project you post.
