Confession: I’m a jacket junkie. I can’t help myself. I love wearing, sewing, buying, and even hording coat patterns.
When I first saw the tester photos for the Cascade Jacket last month, I knew that I had to make this – fleece coats have become my favorite go-to, lightweight cover-up (I am also impatiently waiting for KitschyCoo’s High Top Hoodie pattern to come out). Consequently, the moment it came out, I grabbed it…. and now it will become my new project! I also found a wonderful fleece at Joann’s (that’s an oxymoron, isn’t it? I know how many of us hate working with this fabric and at a store that some have a lovehate relationship with) – bonded microfleece. This material has a great feel (it also looks like it will resist pilling), good stretch and recovery, and has two shades of blue (one teal side teal, one side navy) on each side…. I’m anxious to give it a go! While Joann’s no long has this fabric online, you may be able to find it at your local store in the ‘specialty fleece’ section (that was the actual sign labeled under this fabric). Here’s all the details for this project (note that I used a 50% off coupon for the fleece).
