Have you guys been following along with Rachel of Define Refine and Be Mine as she has been making a pattern from her favorite pair of jeans? I have been very impressed and inspired by this process and wanted to give it a go myself.

I was at the thrift store the other day and found this vintage - 70's - blazer. To my surprise the fit and the cut were perfect. The fabric, on the other hand, was not perfect. It's some sort of wool blend that reeks of moth balls and is pilling. So I decided this was the perfect piece to use as a pattern. I am going to start the long process of unpicking the jacket tonight. I will check back in with the process soon.
