What are you most proud of? I actually made a jacket!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When making an embellished version stay with your size. I went down a size and across the chest my jacket is a little too small.

Congratulations on finishing such an overwheming project (I bought the fabric for the jacket and ended up making alot of smaller projects). I really love your colour choices and the finished jacket looks great and fits you well.

Beautifully done. The quality of your craftsmanship and sewing is top notch too! You should be really proud of this one girlfriend!!!

Nice. I've just started the class, though I bought it more than six months ago. Just watched Lesson 1, and am eager to try my hand, but haven't bought fabric yet. I like your colors. Thanks for showing. You recommended using a smaller size pattern for the embellished fabric - could you elaborate?

Thank you for asking~ I just changed my suggestion to staying with your size in an embellished version. Everything about the fit of this jacket feels right to me, but across the back it is a little too tight. I went down a size and now I'm not sure it was a good idea.
