So I was at the Costco the other day and this lady came up to me and told me she liked my jacket and asked me where I got it so I suppose it doesn't suck. I was reluctant to be photographed in it only because my hair was a mess and I didn't want to be on the world wide web looking like a haint. I have an odd relationship with my hair it only looks really good about 5 times a year when someone else does it, other than that I can hardly bear to run a comb through it, so much so that the other day, I was whining to Mickey that I didn't want to comb my hair and he said, "Well, you gotta do something, you can't go around looking like Melody hears a Who!" So, of course, when your husband tells you you look like a Dr Seuss character, it's time to really step up the game on the grooming. Anyway, I got my hair done today and I consented to be photographed in my new coat/jacket. I still think the hem is uneven and I think I'm going to put a hidden snap at the top but I've totally decided against buttons. I don't need any other action going on up there. I love the way it feels, it's sooo soft and very warm (flannel underlining), I can actually stand Michigan in this coat. Here it is Simplicity 3562
I used this fabric and this fabric for the lining.
