Barney Jacket

I sewed all day Sunday and was able to finish the McCalls 5981 jacket, it's very purple brighter than the picture but I love it.

Inside out, I lined it with the left over eggplant/deep purple fabric that I used to make the epic fail jumpsuit.
This is a great jacket and I have to thank Gold for the inspiration, after seeing her red version I knew I had to make this, my DD wants one I'm going to try and work on it this weekend and get a jump on my Christmas sewing.


Beside adding the lining I redrafted the collar because I wanted to use the lining fabric for the under collar to eliminate bulk, even with the lining this was still a pretty quick project.
