I'm Making a Show Jacket!

I am making a show jacket for one of our fellow bloggers.  She can "out" herself in the comments if she chooses.  There will be a whole post about it when it's finished, but here is just a teaser of how it's coming together...

  1. Where can you get a pattern for something like that? I would love to try my hand at a shirt or jacket for the teenage girl who bought my horse!

    This one is beautiful!

    1. Hi Pony! Thanks! When I'm not drafting my own patters, I use patterns from Suitability.com. I've been using their patterns for over 15 years.... crap I'm old! For this jacket, I used the 5630 Jacket but I did some adjustments to it. I'll explain more when I do the follow-up post.

  3. :) I have been wondering actually if you would be interested in doing a commission piece. Email me what prices might be, although I know it would vary. :) paint_horse_milo@yahoo.com

  4. very cool!! The only thing I can sew is replacing a button, so the fact that you make all that stuff baffles me! I hope we get to see the finished product!

    1. It's never too late to learn, Laura!!! There is a nice movement towards the home-sewn again and lots of fabric and sewing machine stores are jumping on with beginner classes!

      Don't worry, I'll bombard you with photos of the finished product!
