The patterning in this fabric is so striking that I knew it had to be the central element of the jacket, not just an accent. I had two yards in the same colors (Judy dyes each yard individually), but I really didn't want to "blow my wad" in just one project. My dilemma was how to get a striking jacket from just one yard of fabric so I could save the other yard for another project. Happily my fabric stash came to the rescue. I found several pieces of fabric in complementing colors, some of which had woven patterns that also seemed to echo the dyed patterns in Judy's fabric.
So here's the result.
