I am almost finished with the jacket to McCalls 5597. The skirt has been completed for almost two weeks. Just from looking at this pattern, I originally thought that the neck/collar area was more complicated to work with. But it's not at all.
I have taken chunks of time to sew. Tonight might be my chance to complete the jacket. I only have the hems for the jacket & lining, the sleeves and then add a buttonholes & button.
