What materials did you use? 7 ounce stretch denim. White topstitching thread, regular bobbin thread for the topstitching.

What are you most proud of? Finishing it! I must have ripped out and resewn almost every seam at least once! Unfortunately, you can see that I repaired some topstotching seams starting midway, as seen on the upper pocket.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I bought the wooden pressing tool and clapper toward the end of the project (half price at Joann's). It would have been very helpful to have at the beginning. I will also get a narrow foot like the one Janet is using before starting my second jacket.
