Bargello Jacket

I completed my jacket on Saturday night.  I had the sleeves and sides seams basted together several times to get the fit correct for me.  DH was trying to help, making suggestions.   I chose to round the corners at the neck and hem.  I could add buttons, but like it the way it is for now.  I'm really pleased with the finished jacket, and I think I'll get lots of use in the spring and fall up north, and in the winter in Florida.  Since I bought extra fabric, I'm thinking of making a purse to match.
It was fun making the jacket, based on a sweatshirt


  1. Looks beautiful! Love the colors and design and I'm sure you will get lots of use out of it. A matching purse would be perfect.

  2. It's lovely, Susan! The narrow stripes between each piece of the bargello gives a sort of stained-glass effect. :)
