Hi, almost 20 years ago I saw a jacket on a lady in a nursing home where I worked. She couldn't remember the name of the pattern but told me she would get her daughter to find it and bring it to me. So long ago, LOL, I can't remember what happened but I never got the pattern and I never forgot it either. So I am hoping someone has this pattern or knows the name of it so I can find it. I appreciate any and all help along the way.
The jacket had a ruffly collar like a clowns ruffle. The body of the jacket flared out at the bottom, if I remember correctly it was done in a ripple, kind of fitted at the top and as I said bigger at the bottom of the jacket. The sleeves were fitted at the armhole but puffed out until the 3/4 point where it switched to a long cuff.
Please if you have seen a pattern similar to this one let me know. You can email me directly. Thanks, Sylvia
Is the pattern Victorian style? If so there is a pattern book with Jane Austin style designs, it's called Austentatious Crochet by Melissa Horozewski. I have ordered the book, but it's not out yet so I cannot tell you what it's like or if it's what you're looking for. Good luck finding the pattern!
Sorry. I don't know how I missed this email. If you get this: I do not think it looked victorian at all. I am beginning to think it was a lacy bed jacket that the lady modified although she didn't say that. Thanks, Sylvia
Was this it? It's lacy, flares out and has a scalloped (not rippled) bottom http://www.knitting-crochet.com/crochet/bedjac.html
If not, there are a LOT of jacket patterns on this site: http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/womens_coats_jackets.php

I think this is a Victorian style. try searching the Internet.
