There are no jacket patterns that I can fit on that fabric that I will be really happy with, so a jacket from the herringbone is out. (stop crying, Jenny, and move on!) I have a roughly woven wool in a peachy color I don't really like for fall. I love the fabric, just not the color. I will dye that a rusty brown, and, assuming I'm happy with the color, I will use that with the original Marfy pattern. I don't really want to buy more fabric for this SWAP, and a quick internet look last night didn't turn up anything I love for this anyway.
Since the herringbone will never be a jacket (I was super cheap when buying that fabric, apparently), I will still use it in the SWAP. First I thought of pants, but the fabric doesn't really scream "pants" to me. Then I thought walking shorts. I think they're coming "back in." That could be cute. Then I had an epiphany... it will be a jumper. Yes, a jumper. I haven't worn one in years, but I think this will be cute, but not too cutesy.
