Jackie - It's orange

Jackie is my 'just grab it' jacket for Winter.
My head cold dictated being rugged up in a warm, soft jacket with a collar that hugs me was perfect.
Here's how I've worn Jackie during the week.


Orange really lifts my spirits on a cold and very grey winter's day.

Jackie has also been a fun casual jacket too.

My ta dah picture.

The plant behind me only flowers at the end of Winter. Yay.


See what I mean about a great colour making grey look amazing.

Lena has some prizes up her sleeve for Jackie sewalong-ers. I'll give you those details shortly.

Have you see Janelle's jacket yet? 

I'll add Janelle's photos here once her post goes live. Her work is impeccable. Take a peek on the Flickr group.
When I make Jackie again, I'll get my hem right. 
I got my measurements wrong so I had to redo the lengths are here's the result. I didn't make a test jacket so I'll just have to live with these results.

Hi five if you've started your own Jackie. Or finished it as the case may be?

I'll update our sewalong posts soon.

Go to the flickr group and add your version - whenever you're ready.
