What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a versatile pattern for a short coat or "Car coat" as we used to say. I really like the double collar.

Another great project. Really sharp car coat. Love your attention to detail such as fit, fabric, design, finishing and couture details. Keep them coming :)

Very pretty jacket, the fabric looks very similar to a jacket I used for one of my projects, is it linen?

It is a silk fabric, but it has the feel of a cotton. I was told by my friend who teaches textiles that iit is a novelty weave. It looks a little bit like a tweed.

What a gorgeous "car coat". Much too pretty for just riding around in the car! Would love to see the inside, as I know it is as pretty as the outside!
