What are you most proud of? This is the first jacket I ever made... I cant' believe it is actually wearable!!! And of course: I did not use a single pin!!! THANK YOU Janet!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I got for Christmas an extension table for my sewing machine as well as a 1/4" quilters foot - they were both fantastic to finish the project.

It looks great!! I love the fabric and the buttons. Can't wait to make one for myself. It's encouraging to see how good this style looks on you.

Thank you Janet for all your good teaching - I could not have made it without your help! I liked the fabric as well - but just had 2 yards.... let's put it like this: for a size M, I just had a couple of square inches left over from cutting!!! :-) again thanks, If you decide to give any other course on craftsy for sure I will enroll!!
