I did get the jacket cut out the other night and started sewing it today. It's going to be a jean-style corduroy jacket. The fabric is a stretch corduroy that I bought last year for very little money at the end of winter.
this jacket. I'll try to take more pictures of the sleeve later.
The corduroy is really messy. After an hour of sewing, my shirt is covered with lint and fuzz. Only the biggest pieces showed up in this picture, which is likely the wierdest one I've ever taken.
