What are you most proud of? I put those sleeves in without using pins.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Without thinking I trimmed my seams when I surged the edges and it left me short to catch the seams when I did my top stitching. It all worked out in the end but I'll know better next time. Janet does an excellent job teaching this class and I hope she does another class for us.

What type of material did you use? It looks like a brown denim.

I used a cotton twill, it isn't as heavy as denim.

I too used black with black topstitching. silver shank buttons. Hard to see using all black but I love the jacket!
