I have a pattern graciously donated by for a Jean Jacket. This pattern is designed for women with full curves, narrow shoulders and rounded tummy. Kathleen Cheetham's perfect fit guide with instructions is included. Sizes 14-24 included.

Posting will begin now until midnight April 24/07.

Post in Garment Construction your greatest achievement in sewing for yourself. It could be anything from a fitting technique to a drop dead gorgeous outfit. Tell us all about it in the Garment Construction forum.

One poster will be randomly chosen to receive the pattern. Good luck everyone.

I think one of my greatest sewing achievements was not just mine, but my sisters too. During my junior year in high school I was attending a different school than my sister. We both were quite busy and didn't see each other much since Christmas that year. Both of us made our prom dresses.

I went to prom at our regular school, and we both used the same patterns, an old fashioned empire wasted, long sleeve, same pattern, and almost idential trims and fabrics. It was amazing. Both dresses were beautiful and it was a nice reunion.
