What materials did you use? I used a cheap piece of cotton I had in my stash and although this was a fitting toile I decided to create a finished garment in order to practice all the techniques. I will now make it again in a better fabric.

I found the course most helpful, Janet is very clear and concise. I began using the techniques and am using less (almost none) pins on other garments. I have not yet made the jacket because I'm not sure it be petitable. According to finised garment measurements the sleeve length is 10 inches too long. How do you take out 10 inches? Im pretty sure the shoulder will be too long as well. Guess i will try a toile to see if i can make it work somehow.

I have narrow shoulders and I did not have to make as much adustment as usual, especially as it is a relaxed style and so doe not neeed to fall exaclty on the edge of the shoulder.. I also have short arms and took off 2". Apparenltely the sleeve length is measured from the centre backk neck and so you wil find they are not as much too long as you think.

You did a great job on this! As my daughters would say, it's "adorbs!" I'm working through 2 other Craftsy classes before I attempt to make my jacket, but I have watched the course all the way through and am using many of the techniques on my other projects.
