What materials did you use? I am using some beautiful black 100% wool bought from the lovely Mr Rosenberg at the Hobbycraft Fair in Glasgow for the coat and some lovely soft silky lining, which was an absolute pest to sew, quite frankly.

What are you most proud of? I think I am most proud of the sleeves. These are the easiest sleeves that I have put into a jacket in my life. I particularly loved the sleeve head trick.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I strongly advise you to pay close attention to every word and action that Prof. King gives in his lessons. And ask lots of questions: he has been clear, concise and very kind in his replies to me, and I thank him for this.

Oh my! Your jacket is simply divine. I love, love, love the blood-red lining, even if it was tough to sew, it looks incredible!! Great job!
