What are you most proud of? The topstitching! My topstitching skills are atrocious, but after this class, I really learned to take my time and create wonderful topstitching. Its still not perfect, but its definitely a lot better than it was. Also, I made this jacket entirely without the use of pins!!! Janet talks about this in the class and its awesome. I'll never go back!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Its a fabulous jacket and one that works so well in my day to day life. I'm loving it! This pattern fit me perfectly right out of the envelope and I couldn't be more impressed with the drafting of the jacket pattern. Its Fabulous! For more info on my review of the class and the pattern here's a link to my blog post: http://www.afashionablestitch.com/2013/sewing/genius/

Love your take and updated fabric. I sew for my 27 yr old attorney daughter who is 2000+ miles away from me. I sent pic of original fabrics and although I like them .... She hated it! Then without telling her- I sent pic of your jacket and she loved it! Fabric choice makes such a difference!

I love how you made it your own, leaving off the welt pockets and collar.
