What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1. Time spent fitting your muslin properly is well spent. 2. Use the best materials possible...it truly does make a difference in the final result. 3. Follow all Lorna's instructions with no shortcuts and you will be thrilled with your jacket.

So happy that you've been bitten by the handsewing bug! The results are simply incredible. Not enough adjectives to describe this jacket or your workmanship.
