What materials did you use? Stretch denim 4-way knit and grey button draft thread

What are you most proud of? The collar looks pretty good even though there is no interfacing and is only supported by the hand top stitching. I also made a muslin first to check the basic fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to use a pattern for a woven make a muslin because you'll be able to do down 1-2 sizes with a knit. I also suspect the sleeves on the pattern will need to be narrowed to keep that body-conscious fit of AC jackets.

Great jacket. I'll have to check out that pattern. Thanks for including it.

Really nice! That's the pattern I used for the Alabama Tuck Coat, so it's fun to see your personal twist on it. I, too, was pleasantly surprised by how well the Mandarin collar works without interfacing. I hope you'll post again when you add the sleeves.

Great job! I just bought that pattern today after seeing faux nom's tuck coat on Flickr. I'm glad you mentioned the sizing since I am a 14-16 and always have to decide whether to go for the larger or smaller pattern - I picked smaller! Please post any comments about the sleeves as you complete them, I'll be checking in.

Thanks everyone! The finished garment turned out differently that I planned but I still like it.
