I'm curious about the hem facing on the sides. It almost looks like this version has an elastic insertion in the sides to make the jacket slightly narrower at the bottom. I like that idea because it makes the jacket a little less boxy. Are there instructions for this option in the pattern? Or is it just an optical illusion? :)

No, it's an optical illusion. I like to think it makes me look thinner!

This jacket is not as boxy as you might think.

Hi Janet, I have a question about the fabric in this jacket. I believe I remember seeing in the video that it is a Moda fabric. If I'm searching for Moda fabric that is the correct weight for the Jacket Express, what am I searching for? What does United Notions or Moda call this fabric - not the print name but this weight/suitable weight for a jacket? I'll try to post this question in the question section at the right point in the first video, in case this isn't the best place to ask. Thanks

What is the finished waist measurement of the Extra large pattern?
