What materials did you use? Update a boxy or vintage jacket with some waist shaping. Don't worry about taking in the seams at the armscyes ? I'll show you how!

Angela, I have a jacket (coat) that is way too big for me (lost a bunch of weight). Anyway, the jacket has a pleat on the back from the neck to the bottom. How can I tailor the jacket to my size with the pleat. Is there extra steps I should do because of the pleat, or should I just follow your technique to alter? thanks so much, Jean...
