What are you most proud of? Achieving making this jacket without any pins!designing my own welt pockets and buttonholes.The jacket pattern was one i already had,using pattern making software,the yoke was to be gathered but i chose to pleat it instead,minor changes on my part.Top stitching was done with matching thread to the garment.A bad was on the bottom edge,

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give it a try you will not go back to using pins anymore.

I love your jacket. It is nice to see these techniques applied in other sewing situations. I can't wait for my pattern to arrive, but your jacket has inspired me to sew something up in the mean time!

I had the poka dot fabric in my stash,it was just enough to make the contrast facings with too.I had enough denim to make myself a sun hat. :)
