Fruit Ladies Jacket

This fabric called to me from across the room and I just had to have some–like a lot of other people but I have yet to see anything made from it. So, at a recent guild workshop, I decided to use this fabric as the basis for a jacket. The class called for a sweatshirt but in the middle of May here in Texas where summer began almost a month ago, there none to be had; so I thought I might try just a regular knit shirt. I took it apart, sleeves, front and back, slit the front, put the fruity ladies on surrounded by coordinating fabrics and added two yo-yos at the collar. I did put some interfacing along the front facing area. Now to find something to wear with it.
