Make your own wearable work of art with this unique jacket! We've borrowed so many quilting techniques for this jacket and combined it with the principles of garment sewing -good fit and figure flattering shaping - to make a jacket you will love wearing. Optionally, with a little extra technique this can also be made as a reversible jacket. This is an intermediate to advanced project but your experienced instructor will guide you through each step of the way.
