What are you most proud of? I love that I envisioned the work, and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. I'm also proud I graded up effectively from a 5T to a 8/10. http://kelly.hogaboom.org/homesewn/private-collection/wollen-jas-blauw

What advice would you give someone starting this project? A jacket or coat is best served with a front facing, not a simple turn-under hem. This is easy enough, but you need to ask a more advanced stitcher how to do it. The pattern does not indicate seam allowances. I assumed 3/8". Sewing in a poly fleece (with some stabilizing materials for the crest and perhaps the buttonholes), or any non-ravelling fabric, will give fast and lovely results. The advantages of bound buttonholes are not only that they look and wear fabulous, but you do them first, and in the flat. Sewing the facings later is a great way to practice a sturdy handstitch. http://kelly.hogaboom.org/homesewn/private-collection/wollen-jas-blauw
