Fabric Love and a perfect project

{Jacket - self made, Jeans - Jbrand, Shoes - Tahari via DSW similar here, Watch - Michael Kors}

When I saw this fabric in JoAnn, I knew I had to buy it. It was just the perfect fabric for ___ and then I drew a blank. For months I could not figure out what I wanted to make with this fabric and to add to it the remnant was only few 1.5 yards (i.e. 1.3716 meters). For months I looked at it not knowing what to do with it....I jumped between ideas - pillow cases, dress, top etc. And then one day just browsing I found this pattern - Lisette Simplicity 2209 and then it was there my perfect project. I love this jacket and you know what it wasn't difficult at all to make. The only pain in the neck was matching the print while cutting the fabric, can you spot it?
