Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing

What materials did you use? Jim Thompson silk for the shell, gold dupioni silk for the lining, and interlined with wool jacketing.

What are you most proud of? I've only been sewing for about six months, so I'm quite pleased that it looks good. The zippers and welt pockets look fine, and I used Janet Pray's burrito method to enclose the seams at the cuffs, waistband and collar. And I would have bonded permanently with my seam ripper without Linda Lee.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Study your craftsy classes. And be bold with your silk. It was not as challenging as I feared. I actually used Janet Pray's nearly pinless method of stitching and I found I had a good deal more control of the fabric. I also posted this project to Janet's class.

OMG!!! That is a beautiful jacket. You are so talented!! I've been sewing a lot longer than 6 months and my garments are not nearly as impressive as yours is.
