I call this my Elvis Jacket. I feel like I should wear this in Las Vegas to an Elvis impersonation show or something. The pattern is Vogue 8307 and I made it a few years ago. The main fabric is a wonderful felted wool that I picked up during a vacation to Austria. The fabric had been aging in my stash until I found the perfect fabric for the collar on another vacation - this time to England. I love the collar on the jacket - it can either be worn standing up (as in my pictures) or laying down for a flatter look. I like it standing up.
