I think it looks great! Your lining application looks great too, and remember, its on the inside so no one sees it but you. An invisible zipper might have been cleaner for the lining, but all in all, this really does look fabulous! Beautiful lapped zipper on the outside!

The only problem with invisible zippers is I find them difficult to zip up when they cross a seam, which this would have. They look better but don't always function as well. You did a nice job with your lapped zipper.

Thanks all, hopefully I'll have time to complete another project soon. Practice makes perfect, so it's said!
