Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? I used Katia lining for the black quilted-style wearable muslin. Then I found some silky polyester animal print fabric that I used for the lining of the boiled wool/poly blend in the fuchsia.

What are you most proud of? No one asks me if I made this coat. They ask me where I bought it! Also, that I stuck with practicing 12 bound buttonholes before making these. These are my first flap pockets and I made the pocket bags extra roomy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do make a muslin first and learn how to do a full bust adjustment with princess seams if you need one. The Craftsy class is excellent. I love the instructions for lining by Linda Lee and am looking forward to adding linings and trying some under linings on my next projects.
