What are you most proud of? That I finished this jacket I felt it was a real challenge for me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a muslin first to be sure of your fit.

This is a cute jacket on you. It's above my skill level but my older sister is the seamstress in the family. She could make this jacket. She's the one who told me about this website. She has her own sewing business so is always looking for other's to share things with and to get ideas from. Thanks for sharing! Valerie
