I love this pattern because I can do so much with it, and so can you.  You can make versions of By Popular Demand to wear just about anywhere. 

There are both a jacket and a top in this pattern, and you can make each garment in many versions.  The jacket includes lots of great details, and the top has a sweet neckline.

This pattern will be specially priced until 8 p.m. Eastern on Monday, June 15. 

Here's a look at the jacket made just like the pattern.  Note all the topstitching and the pockets.  The back has a double yoke, a locker tab (remember those?), a center back seam, and there's a 2-piece sleeve.  The extra sleeve seam joins the yoke seam on the back for a distinctive, skillful detail on the back.  The top has a clever facing that eliminates bulk at the shoulders.

BUT, I want to show you that you can make shirts and vests from this jacket pattern also.  I used a lightweight linen to make a shirt that's a bit longer than the jacket.  A bit heavier linen made a great vest with armhole facings rather than sleeves.

There are many more examples of By Popular Demand variations on the Home Page.  Most of them are made from fabrics like those listed in this newsletter.  Take a look and let your imagination run wild.  I know there's something there that will appeal to each of you.

Here are some fabrics that could work well for the By Popular Demand jacket or top---or some innovative variations that you design.  As we've seen, the pattern can be used for tops, vests, shirts, jackets, and coats!

You may be wondering why I'm sending you this newsletter on Tuesday, a day late.  Here's why--

            tornado in Orlando

The Orlando tornado hit at the end of my block, 3 houses away.  It was over in seconds, but the power and internet outage lasted much longer.  I was fortunate--only a fluorescent bulb in my garage broke, and lots of branches landed in my yard.  Sadly, 5 houses away, someone's entire roof disappeared, and many other homes within a mile of me lost roofs, trees, furnishings, and peace of mind.  Fortunately, I know of no injuries.

Please remember to check out the Home Page.  I'm posting LOTS of photos there that I think you'll enjoy.  Sooooooo many ideas!!

Also, a couple of our Facebook Forum members posted photos of their versions of this jacket within the past few days.  If you're not a member, you might need to be.  Answer the 3 easy questions and sign up!
