January Project: McCall's 6711

My sewing challenge for January was to try a new technique, and so I chose to sew this more constructed jacket pattern out of a soft sweater knit, using McCall's 6711.

Even with the adjustments to the fit, I am happy with this jacket. The fabric is a very soft, double-sided sweater knit with minimal one-way stretch. I paid all of $1.50 for the 2 yards when I purchased this at an estate sale a few months ago.
