My Finished Kwik Sew Jacket

Here it is.  I love this pattern...so quick and easy to put together.  I'm really disappointed in my button placement though.  What was I thinking?  I should have either shortened them up or added one.  My camera isn't that great...can't see the buttons, but they are from my old button stash.  Pretty gold.

This is the pocket on the side front.  Nice deep pockets to throw in a set a keys and a cell phone and deep enough to add a credit card!!

Now on to more alterations I got yesterday after work and my daughter's dress.

Thank you all for your nice comments.  I too have been doing alot of reading but no posting.  One nice thing about blogging is that it keeps me sewing!!  AND best of all, I finish my projects!!

Nice jacket! Is there not room to add that button/buttonhole between the other two? Your stitching is beautiful, great job :)

Your jacket is gorgeous. I love the deep purple. The button placement looks fine to me.

I can relate. I spend more time reading other blogs, too. But they do inspire me.
