 My trusted and very much loved yellow herringbone (polyester) jacket is now too big.

Too big to move the buttons, it would take some serious taking apart and re-sewing to make it fit. And since I didn't want to do that, and I may gain that weight again I thought that it would be a better idea  to make a new one.

I have no more of that fabric, so I'm using a burgundy cotton stretch twill with a black window pane check pattern that I bought on sale (the kind where you pay according to weight, really cheap). I hate the stretch part, but the lining it will hopefully stop it from stretching too much.

My plan is to finish it before I go to a conference next Wednesday, since I want to look good there and my other spring jackets are not that professional in cut.
