This is the jacket I made during my vacation.  My 20 year-old New Home sewing machine had just been to the shop and they told me that it might or might not work, so I really splurged with DH’s knowledge and bought myself a new Janome and had a total blast all week, sewing like a little whirling dervish with my doggies at my feet.  Talk about Heaven!!  The material of my jacket is an “elevated pique” from Vogue  It’s actually a textured cotton.  I just love it because it’s so bold! ~Jennifer
