Making a wool jacket

My daughter and I spent a very happy weekend in her cozy sewing room. We made Vogue 8861 for her out of some Marc Jacobs herringbone wool.

"Window" faced with lining to frame bound buttonhole

This jacket has a very graceful collar
                                        It was a very fun project for a cold winter weekend!

 My daughter texted me this photo of herself going off to work this morning in her new jacket!!
