8th October Jelly roll quilted jacket. I've been meaning to make a quilted jacket for a couple of years and finally got round to it. You'll need some basic sewing skills for this one. It's a simple, lined edge to edge jacket with jelly roll strips for the outer layer. You'll need to buy the pattern, Suzanne has them in stock. If you're not a confident dressmaker I would suggest attending one of Sheila Kelly's classes to assemble the jacket - details of dates and prices available on the Pink Scissors website. She will also offer a fitting service (measure you and advise on the right size to use) for £10. 1 place left
