and really brown, like crappical.
I think the color, length and front bands contribute to the ecclesiastical feel of this jacket. I did learn something making this. I experimented scorching a design into the fabric. I've done this before with a slinky fabric but never with a double knit and I was just curious to see whether it would work. Here are some detail photos of it:

The fabric was from the Great fabric sale and arts and scraps. I probably won't wear this and for sure I will not wear it over black sweatpants and a black T-shirt. But I might make the pattern again in a sweater knit, a little shorter though and maybe with the dress that goes with it.
Even failure is a learning experience.
