What materials did you use? Rayon and Poly blend with metallic threads. Top stitching thread #40. I also used the selvedge for the cuff trim because I really liked how it looked and thought it would be a fun addition.

What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with the fit and all the techniques that were taught that really makes the jacket look so well done. I know this is a piece that will be worn often.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the steps, and just get started. I really loved the whole process and I had fun sewing this jacket. I am so pleased with all the tips and knowledge that Janet shared with all of us. My skills continue to develop. Next jacket I will use a fabric that show cases more of the top stitching.
