All the posts relating to the Jackie Coat Sewalong will be updated on this initial post.
And don't forget to post your pics to the Flickr Group.

Janelle and I love Iconic Patterns and we agreed to host a Jackie Coat sewalong so anyone who has Jackie in their pattern stash, will always be able to refer to these posts. Lena has Jackie on special at the moment so you can buy your Jackie at a discount (score) as we sewalong.

How fabulous to do this as a group effort! It makes me smile so much to see women working together and bringing their skills to the table to share. Love it!

I agree. Sharing sewing experiences seems to make our hobby a whole lot more fun. I keep learning with each sewist I 'speak to'.
